PostHeaderIcon Do you make breakfast count?

Breakfast is one meal of the day that I make sure the boys eat and eat well. Even if it’s a cereal day. I always make sure that there is something in addition to it which is usually fruit or yogurt. Some mornings… all 3. I am thankful that they have grown to love so many different kinds of fruits. I can remember as a kid, my Mom always making us drink Orange Juice with our breakfast. Usually if milk is involved with breakfast, I tend to not let them drink OJ right away. Not a good mixture in their tummies that early in the morning.

Our mornings have become some what of a ritual. I learned a long time ago that even the littlest thing can make school mornings stressful. It USUALLY runs like clock work but there are those days when no one wants to get out of bed, when they kids change their mind at the last second as to what the want for breakfast or someone gets sick. On a typical morning, Royal is awake before everyone so he is eating breakfast by 6-6:30. Spencer and I follow him at 7:10. Teeth are being brushed by 7:30. dressed by 7:45, book bag packed by 7:50 and out the door at 8. I am loving the mornings that Spencer doesn’t wander our of bed until 9. I expect that this is a a temporary treat that I am receiving. But I am hoping like crazy it isn’t.

For as many years as I can remember, Tropicana is the only brand of orange juice that I buy. I used to be a huge fan for the Heavy Pulp style but as I get older, I seem to have a bigger taste for no pulp. On occasion I do like “some pulp”. If I don’t have time to eat breakfast, I always at least have a glass of nice cold OJ. I’ll be honest, I rarely eat breakfast. It is just one of those things I picked up from my Dad. I am never usually hungry but I feel like I should take in something.

PostHeaderIcon Clorox Ode to the Commode

My sons are like fish when it comes to water. It is only March and they are already asking me when the pool will be open. My oldest is actually going to be on a swim team this year! Usually bath time consists of me telling Spencer that he can’t stay in the tub for 3 hours. If he isn’t “pruney” he says he can’t get out yet. It is like some kind of a timer to him. Like if he gets out before his fingers are “pruney” the world will end or something.

While I really can’t think of anything my boys have really done in the bathtub that is funny, I did recall a picture that I took of Royal when he was just about a year old. It is one of my favorite pictures of him! When I went looking through my compurter for it, I came across another that I took when he was 3. Is tarted laughing because I didn’t remember taking the second one. I guess I thought I needed a silly follow up p[ic. RED SOLO CUP! My “baby” is going to be 10 in July. Oh my gosh, where did the time go?
