I get up at 3:00AM, weed the garden, work out, shower, slip on my dress, heels, and pearls, then tie on my stylish, ruffled apron as I head to the kitchen to whip up a batch of eggs benedict and maple-glazed French toast made from freshly baked baguettes. As I greet my six children, one by one, I motion with my gleaming spatula for them to take a seat at my perfectly set table, complete with neatly pressed linens and fresh flowers from my garden.
Yeah right! And then the alarm clock goes off and interrupts that little fantasy! In reality, I don't go to bed until 3:00AM and then I sleep as late as possible until the noise from my fighting kids makes me drag my butt out of bed. One of the little ones will ask me what's for breakfast. I'll make monosyllabic grunts as I gesture in the general direction of the Corn Flakes and the Apple Jacks, while shuffling toward my coffee maker.
Yep, that's pretty much my breakfast routine during the summer. And you know what? I'm ok with that. I know my kids are getting a decent breakfast with vitamins and minerals they need, it's something they can fix all on their own, and I know they're going to eat it because they like it.
