life lesson #1: make a homemade breakfast

This morning I woke up in a great mood. I got to read my bible for a few minutes and enjoy some peace before Duncan came downstairs and sat with me. It was nice to get some one on one with him, he's a pretty great kid, if I say so myself. We didn't get to hang out too long, Madi came down and joined us about 10 minutes after Duncan woke up, and Logan wasn't far behind her.

They of course started telling me they were hungry mere seconds after they said good morning. My good mood gave me the idea to forgo our normal cold cereal or frozen waffles and make something myself. I asked the kids if they wanted pancakes and eggs, and immediately they started grabbing for their shoes, and Logan even asked if he could bring his shark with us. That's when it hit me that I don't make breakfast much if the idea of it makes them think we're going out for breakfast. It got more depressing when I explained I would make the food. They looked confused! The concept of a homemade breakfast baffled even my genius 4 year old that can read and write. So I've come to the conclusion that I need to make breakfast for my kids more often, and not just when daddy's home. It also made me wonder what else I don't do enough for my kids. I'm going to dedicate this weekend to spending time doing those things we don't do enough, that way Josh can join in too. I learn something new everyday, mostly from my children. Today the lesson started at and about breakfast, I wonder what I'll learn tomorrow...hmm.
