Breakfast--Proud Mommy Moment

This week's Proud Mommy Moment is a pretty simple one. It used to be that I got up and got myself ready for work, ate breakfast and then about 10 minutes before we needed to leave, I woke my kids, threw clothes on them and if they were lucky gave them cereal. If not, they ate at their babysitter's. But then, last year, Michelle started kindergarten. It became important for her to eat a good breakfast. And Alfredo's job changed so he is now home until about 7:30 instead of leaving at 5. So since last August, I have been cooking a hot breakfast nearly every morning. Most often it is pancakes, because that is everyone's favorite. Sometimes Michelle will eat 3 or more. And Gabby loves them too. Even Alfredo and Ella enjoy them.

But I also make oatmeal, waffles, french toast, eggs, cinnamon rolls (So okay that one's not very healthy!), bacon and on rare mornings I even cut up fruit to go with breakfast...cantaloupe or strawberries.
Getting myself and 3 kids ready for work and school and babysitter's isn't always easy, and there are ocassionally mornings that we resort to cold cereal or toast, but it is the exception not the rule now. I feel better when I eat a good breakfast, and I think everyone else does too. So it's worth getting up a little earlier (and also being a little more organized the night before...) to begin the day right.
