As a teacher, the last few days of summer are coming to an end. And unlike many parents who can barely contain their excitement that their children will be back in school for 6 hours a day (remember the Staples commercial with the parent dancing in the aisles?!?), I am still not ready for summer to be over. I had the pleasure of not working this summer but spending care-free days with my daughter.
Now as the first day of school for both of us looms in the week ahead, I am panicking about what to give her for breakfast that is both healthy and fast. Our morning routine goes something like this:
5:30-Hubby wakes up, showers, gets dressed, and eats
5:45-I wake up, shower, get dressed, etc
6:30-Hubby wakes up daughter, gets her dressed and fed and then he leaves
7:15-We are out the door
It may seem like a lot of time, but in essence we are running around like mad men the moment my daughter wakes up. She is the pokiest eater, so I am trying to figure out what can be quickly made and eaten (and even brought in the car if need be). I would prefer breakfast items that don’t get stuck in her hair–e.g. yogurt or syrup! So that doesn’t leave us with too many choices. We have had some all out throw down screaming and kicking battles this summer trying to brush her hair!! Instead of giving in and not brushing her hair, I need some breakfast items that won’t make for a terrible beginning!!
On the off chance we do give her yogurt or syrup, I want to try the Knot Genie. I’m hopeful one of these little guys could eliminate the kicking screaming and tears (not to mention knots) that come with a good Monday morning hair brushing!!
