I’m not a breakfast person. This probably stems from not being a morning person. I used to feel bad about this, but then I got over it. While I may get nauseous eating within 4 hours of waking up, there are days when it feels like my kids need to eat within 4 minutes of waking up.
I’m lucky that my husband (alternately known as “spouse”) usually takes on morning duties. As long as I’ve left some staples in the fridge, he’s happy to feed the kids. Mornings are also fast in our house, so there are rarely weekday mornings when there’s enough time for a warm breakfast. Morning meals usually consist of cereal/milk, yogurt with granola and raisins, fruit with cottage cheese, rice cakes with something spread on top… simple stuff that can be made quickly.
Weekdays mornings are usually filled with multiple kids and/or adults oversleeping, last minute homework being done, fights over bathroom time, discussions about wardrobe selections, so it’s really rare that we ever have time for a warm weekday breakfast. Even less often, are times when I’m looking forward to making a warm weekday breakfast. So rare, that this may only be the third time that I’ve done this. Soft boiled eggs and toasted bread: it’s so easy that I might be encouraged to repeat this… next year.
