How to Prepare a Memorable and Special Breakfast for Kids
As a parent, one of the things that tug my heart is seeing my kids grow up so fast. I watch as their clothes slowly become too small. I listen as their voices change pitch. I hear with my heart the conversations that used to echo around our table.
I wonder if I am able to give them enough of my time or if I can make enough memories for them to cherish and remember when they’re old. Did I fill them up with enough love to last a lifetime?
That is why I want to make the most out of our time with each other. Growing up is something that we can’t control, but making special memories is something that we can do together.
I am tired of trying to balance being a wife, mom, and employer. Then you add on to my schedule managing my children’s schedule which should include a six-figure salary, but it doesn’t. What I can do is accept that I am not perfect but I can deliver a meal that they love.
I am not sure but this morning was a special kind of crazy. I was rushing around as usual. There were kids everywhere. The dog was grabbing homework off the counter in a frenzy of chase me, please. There were two out of my three children at the counter. The third was nowhere to be found. I had to get out of the house, and I had 15 minutes to do it. I had a secret weapon.
The secret weapon every parent should know about. The one that can change your day and it can make their day. It is like the sun as it covers you when you are so cold you can’t feel your nose.
These are called Cole’s MIDDLES™, but they will not make the middle of your day better they will make the whole day better.They are available at your local Walmart. They were produced in a nut and tree nut free facility so my daughter with allergies can have them.
Guess what? They do not require a culinary degree! You can make them in minutes in a microwave! When you serve them your kids will do what mine does.
They will stop everything. The will sit down, and all you will hear is YUMMMMMMMMM.
You will pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Yes, you will because they are that good.
MIDDLES™ come in 6 flavors to choose from:
Pretzel Beer Cheese, Bread 5 Cheese, Bread Mac & Cheese, Pain Bagel Cream Cheese, Everything Bagel Cream Cheese, French Toast Cream Cheese.You can check them out here and make sure to grab the $1 Off Coupon.
We are in love with the French Toast Cream Cheese MIDDLES and the Everything Bagel Cream Cheese MIDDLES.
When I say in love, I mean I my kids asks for these and are willing to clean their room to get them. The sweet, savory flavor will draw you in. The MIDDLES™ will keep them satisfied all day long.
I know I can’t be everything to everyone, but I can do my best to prepare the foods my kids love. I try my best to make memories every day.
These are my simple tips on how to prepare a special breakfast that kids will love:
1. Prepare their favorite breakfast. Remember, it doesn’t need to be fancy; it just has to be something you know that they will love to eat. You can even ask kids to help you make them. MIDDLES™ is perfect for this! They are done in minutes. MIDDLES™ are stuffed with a delicious, creamy cheese – bringing together all of your favorite things in the simplest way ever.
2. Talk. Ask about their week in school. Or ask what they want to do with you this weekend. Make sure to listen to what your kids want to say. Sit down with them for those couple of minutes and make it an event not part of the routine.
3. Play a fun breakfast game. It’s a great way to start the day with laughter. I will admit we do a lot of trivia and my oldest usually wins. We also like to play 20 questions.
The other thing you can do is set the mood. Since you will have more time since preparation of breakfast is so easy you can actually set a nice table. You can take out the china and make them tea. You can be the parent you want to be because breakfast is prepared for you.
When you think about your life, you realize what matters most is the people in your lives. It isn’t what we can buy them. It isn’t where we can take them. It is how you make them feel. It is the love you give that leaves the best memories in their mind. It is important to start each day with the right intention.
I hope Cole’s MIDDES™ becomes a part of your routine of making each meal one that is memorable.
