Breakfast is, by far, my most favorite meal of the day. They say it’s the most important one, and if I could have my choice, I’d have the most important one at least three times a day. Yes. I would totally eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And I often do. Cereal for dinner? Why not? Eggs for lunch? Don’t mind if I do! Waffles for an afternoon snack? Of course!
They are just not on the same wavelength as I am. They like breakfast, they just don’t like like it, if you catch my drift. Imagine, they only want to eat it in the morning! It’s like I don’t even know them…
You guys, it may have taken me a few years, but I kind of have got breakfast DOWN. Â Because I am a creature of habit, and usually in a gigantic hurry to hustle the children out the door, it’s all Mini-wheats and coffee for me. Easy Peasy, and of course, delicious. My kids, however, are not creatures of habit, and require a little bit more creativity. My older daughter Emily, for instance, is not a fan of dairy products. I KNOW, right? Who is this kid, and where does she come from? So, no dairy for her. So, quick morning because tricky. Bagels and lox. Crackers and hummus. Eggs over medium. Grapefruit. Cinnamon toast. Depending on time and availability, she usually has one of these. Joshua and Isabella are less picky, and usually opt for cereal or yogurt or fruit. The two of them, obviously, are big fans of dairy.
Weekends are a different beast altogether. Because those mornings are more relaxed and there are usually no alarm clocks or school uniforms or packing lunches or racing involved, I tend to try to celebrate this ability for a laid-back morning with coffee (for me) and donuts (for them). Well, maybe the donuts are for me too. It’s our cheat day, and I’d like to think we deserve one. And if it’s not donuts, it’s something over-the-top, like biscuits and gravy and turkey bacon and all the lovely things my southern blood likes to eat. Or leftover challah french toast. Or pink chocolate-chip pancakes.
No. I’m not kidding.
WHAT? They were delicious. In fact, I may have them for dinner tonight.
