I am calling out to all of the fabulous moms who read Scottsdale Moms Blog for some serious morning help! We are only about a month into school and I already feel stumped on what to make the kids for breakfast each morning. I normally feed the kids some sort of carb (cereal, toaster waffles, maybe cinnamon toast, and occasionally oatmeal), and then I try to add some fresh fruit to provide a semi-balanced breakfast. This is all while trying to get backpacks packed, everyone dressed, three girls’ hair done, and maybe even brush my own hair. I said maybe . . .
I am so bored with these choices, and the kids are even looking to me at breakfast time for some sort of variety. My rules for breakfast are that I only “cook” breakfast, like eggs, pancakes, etc., on the weekends. I refuse to buy the sugar cereals; this is probably why my kids are not that excited on cereal days. I can’t bring myself to give them that much sugar and then send them off to school. Also, I don’t normally eat breakfast myself, unless you count three cups of coffee with milk as breakfast.
