YUM YUM… JUICE!
Today I’m writing about BREAKFAST and our morning routine for the Parent Bloggers Network as part of a contest sponsored by KRAFT BAGEL-FULS. I’m not really a morning person and so my best bet is to get as much stuff ready the night before as possible so that we can avoid being late when its a day we need to go somewhere. Breakfast and getting all of the kids dressed obviously can’t happen the night before though so those things can throw me off schedule!
Our 3 &5 yr old boys never started the day starving (once they graduated the infant stage) and there have been plenty of mornings that I’ve had to leave the house and bring them something to eat in the car because they were too busy playing to sit down and eat before we left. I used to think that was a pain because I worried that they would get hungry when there was no food handy BUT now I wish that 23 month old Jamie had followed her brothers’ lead. Jamie wakes up and yells “yum yum” until I get her something to eat (usually an oatmeal bar to stop the screaming) and then just as I hand her the food she starts demanding “juice, juice juice”. Sometimes I make her very upset and actually take my pregnant bladder into the bathroom first thing after she wakes me up but most mornings I hold off and give her something first. When the boys get around to eating its usually “Daddy’s cereal” AKA: Honey Bunches of Oats (Ethan eats it dry and Ben has rice milk in his). Its summer so we aren’t usually in a rush to get anywhere so I’ve made pancakes twice this past week. Come Sept I think I better start baking healthy muffins to feed all 3 kids in the car though! Then when I have the 4th baby in Oct I’m not so sure how we’ll function and get to school on time in the mornings? Maybe the kids will have to sleep in their clean clothes and I’ll install a fridge in the car!
