Breakfast - Do they get it or do you?

Posted by   + Show Post

In the morning, what do they normally have for breakfast and do you prepare it or do they?

Usually my oldest gets it himself depending on what it is though

They egt cereal every day (unless they ask for eggs or pancakes in advance so I can make they're moving on time). I get it for them, usually when they're finishing up upstairs so when they come down it's ready and we don't lose time.

During the week it's cereal or toast and the older three can fix it themselves. Sundays I cook a big breakfast

Cereal, toast or bagels. They all get their own cereal, and the 12 & 8 year olds get their own toast/bagel. I get those for my 5 year old. 8 year old loves oatmeal and can make it himself.

I get the microwave blueberry pancakes and microwave sausages. She has a good filling breakfast that takes a little over a minute to make. I make it for her with butter and sugar free syrup. If she doesn't want that, which its what she usually wants, she wants cerel or oatmeal.

mornings here are chaos so durring the week its cereal and since they tend to dump it on the floor dh gets it for them. trying to get 3 school age boys and a girl out the door for school is hard enough with 30mins to do so but add in the 18mo who eats at the same time? its almost impossible to do anything but cereal

I have to help in some way or another, but that's mostly because of how our kitchen is set up--they can't reach the cereal.  I also wouldn't trust my 7yo to pour the milk from a more-than half full gallon of milk anyway.  But really most mornings the boys want either frozen waffles or pancakes with Nutella and while they can do almost all of that themselves, they haven't mastered spreading the Nutella so I have to help...not to mention they'd probably eat half of the container if I wasn't standing right there!

They have been getting their own breakfast since they were about 5. Mostly cereal or granola bars.
