tricks to make breakfast fun


Recommended Posts

I don't really know what to call this post, but I thought I'd share as my kids were making their breakfast. Early, early on with my firstborn, we started calling their breakfast oatmeal "gruel." I love the unexpected twist of little 21st century children asking for "more gruel, please!" or saying "you make the best gruel, Mama." I just heard my DD5 say, "you know what I'm really hoping for? Gruel!"

Here's my trick:

A page-a-day art calendar. A nude painting. A 6 y.o. giggling, "Boobies!"


All before coffee. Sigh....


That was a few years ago, btw. We still change the calendar every morning at breakfast and have had plenty if opportunity to discuss nudity in art.
