After a couple of late nights, I came downstairs to find the Oreos and Chewy Nabiscos on the table. Instead of beating myself up (which I did for a hot minute), I looked at this as a win-win.
- My kids were resourceful enough to feed themselves.
- My kids didn’t waste an opportunity for something they wanted.
- I didn’t have to clean up spilled milk from the table.
In actuality, I’ve taught my boys how to fix their own breakfast, within reason. Toast, cereal, and oatmeal are typical breakfast fare in the Jett house. I like that they can eat when they want to, especially if they wake up in the wee hours of the morning. Also, I don’t super care that they ate cookies for breakfast…but I thought it made a funny meme.
And for any health nut naysayers, here’s to coffee full of creamer, donuts, frosting-less cupcakes called muffins, danishes, bagels with cream cheese schmears, biscuits and gravy, and all other delicious “breakfast” food. I’m including cookies in the list now. 🙂
