Leave him. He deserves it.

though was slightly surprised that DS (6) chose lemon juice and sugar over the maple syrup .. he's getting rather sophistimacated he is

also DH makes thick batter with SR flour so they're american style .. I much prefer crepes

Hmmm, I recommend having English children who refuse to accept crepes as pancakes, and get quite upset at the idea that crepes might be substituted for pancakes. That makes for a fun breakfast out.

Completely off my radar - cannot imagine DH ever offering anything more complicated than weetabix or porridge for breakfast - even then struggles with the concept of putting raspberries on DD's.

BUT he does know that he has to do breakfast Tues-Thurs and wouldn't try and get out of that. Oh, apart from that he didn't come home last night.

you do crepes for breakfast ?

only Amercian ones, stacked with nutella and honey in our household. I love doing it for breakfast, no need to bother with cereal on those days.

My dc also get miffed at crepes for breakfast. Ds once fixed one with a beady eye and announced "this is a pudding pancake".

Dh makes fab buttermilk pancakes. But stricly weekends and holidays only - the children know it is daddy's breakfast. Mummy does taost .

My DC adore crepes - but that is from letting them have chocolate ones in Normandy and Brittany. Also DS is of the opinion that they only sell individual portions of dodgy sugary and chocolatey cereal in France.

Lemon juice and sugar is a good choice!

My DS doesn't like pancakes - American style OR crepes. Odd boy.
