What's For Breakfast?

Last Sunday (before church) my three little ones had every game that we own out of the closet and strung all over the house. I entered the front room and proceeded to tell them that if they got one more thing out of the closet I was going to run away!!!! Tyton started laughing and said "Mom - I'm telling you that if you run away, there will be nobody to make me breakfast"! Now that statement is quite hilarious because if you know me, I never make breakfast!!! One morning, many years ago, when I was making pancakes, Carly entered the kitchen and asked me if it was her dad's birthday!! I felt guilty for many years, questioning what kind of mother/wife I was. Finally one night I went to a Relief Society meeting where the speaker informed me that I wasn't a terrible mom/wife if I didn't make breakfast or homemade bread!!!! Instantly the guilt went a way!!! Don't get me wrong, my children do eat breakfast before they leave for school and they have a variety of choices - Fruit Loops, Shredded Wheat, Lucky Charms or Honey Nut Cheerios!!!!!!!

Tyton - I promise you that if I run away, you'll be fine:)

Oh I love it!! Youre better than I am, poor Halle gets sent to school early so she can eat breakfast there!

I'm glad you are just like me. My kids get the same variety.

I guess my kids would be fine if I ran away too. At least their breakfast menu would stay the same. Unless no one went to the store to buy the cereal, then they might have a problem :).

CANNOT believe you feed your children processed foods!!

I remember when I was younger...and so "in love" with my high school boyfriend I used to always say that I would always get up and make my hunny-buns a huge breakfast feast. Then I got married, had a kid, and realized that the whole cooking breakfast thing was so over rated and so fairy-taleish.
I think they would rather have a happy, well-rested mother/wife than a breakfast feast! :)
