Wordful Wednesday - What's for breakfast?

Today is the eighth day of summer vacation.  It is also the eighth day in a row that Kate has gotten up and asked me this simple question:
 "Mom, what can I have for breakfast"?

I informed her that between the time they were in school (8 days ago) till today, that our typical breakfast menu has not changed.

You can almost always expect to have the following choices for breakfast:
1. cold cereal
2. pancakes or waffles
3. fruit
4. yogurt
5. toast
6. eggs

You can also expect that if you get up at 10:00 a.m. that the kitchen will be closed and you will need to make your own breakfast!

So please child.......if you want me to maintain my sanity this summer you will refrain from asking me "What can I have for breakfast" every single morning!

Carry on! 

The logo may have changed but the place to share your Wordful Wednesday is still the same!

Buckeroomama said...

Wow, I wish my kids would wake up at 10am instead of 6am every day!

T~T said...

HA - my son woke up at 10:45 AM this morning and then wanted to know the same thing.

This is my 5 year old's FAVORITE question. Maybe our kids should get together and make breakfast for each other! hee hee...

scrappysue said...

and surely they're old enough to make their own - it's your summer too, right?

Alicia said...

Haha! Sounds like my kids! They'll ask, "What is there to eat?"

Happy WW!

girlytwins said...

Haha. Funny. My favorite is when my girls change their minds after I have made breakfast :) Now they want cereal after I just slaved (Haha) over pancakes.

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

fortunately here we are still stuck in the pancakes make the perfect meal...every meal phase.

Night Owl Mama said...

LOL that's why I buy pop tarts and cereal easy enough to make them selves

blueviolet said...

You're a regular restaurant, aren't you?

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

Hahahaha......

The first word out of my boys mouth every morning is "pancakes" or "waffle".

Mandy said...

You got that right! :)

Suzanne said...

Sounds like our house...in fact, I think we might be living the same lives..married, 2 daughters, ballet dancer, teen... It's great though, huh?:-)

Octamom said...

It's a good thing you've posted the breakfast options so that she can refer back to your blog should she again forget what the menu is...;o)

Blessings!

ParentingPink said...

Yep - my kitchen "closes" for breakfast around 9:30am. Glad to hear I'm not the only one! LOL! Happy WW!

Happy said...

I can totally relate! Good luck with that...I hope your sanity remains intact this summmer!

Sweet Annabelle said...

I'm backin' you up on that!

Brenda said...

What? No donuts??? :)

Cascia said...

That sounds like my daughter! And we have the same items on our breakfast menu.

Motherboard said...

Breakfast after 10am, isn't that lunch?

JamericanSpice said...

I can see me in you a few years from now. lol

~~tonya~~ said...

Too funny!

Happy WW

Susie said...

They don't catch on very quick do they?

LifeAtTheCircus.com said...

I am impressed you offer so many choices daily before 10 am! My kids get oatmeal or cereal and yogurt except on Sat.

Debbie said...

Yep. They do that. And my youngest asks me every single day what is for lunch. "Same things as yesterday" is my answer.

Cathy said...

You tell 'em! I'm glad to know that my child is not the only one who does this! Happy Wednesday!

Julie Brooks said...

Hey Michelle,
What can I have for breakfast!?

Summertime and breakfast ... it's a beautiful thing! ;)

Momisodes said...

My kitchen closes at 10am, too. At least until lunchtime.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with a teen like that. All of us should form a club and meet for .... tea!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Word.

Why do they do that? Maybe I should type up a menu?

Veggie Mom said...

I started off the summer making waffles and/or pancakes several times a week. That has since dwindled to once a week. They haven't gotten sick of them yet, though...

Shannon said...

Oh, I could have written this post.

Except, for us... it's about the 39th day of summer break.

So... yeah. I'm losing my mind...

Honey Mommy said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean! Sheesh!

RhondaLue said...

Amen and Hallelujah!

p.s. Can we also please ask the kids to refrain from sleeping in, eating breakfast at 11:15 a.m. and then asking for lunch at noon sharp? RIDICULOUS!

Jenners said...

This is just like in your finer hotels!

lisaschaos said...

Kids, lol! Maybe you could print a menu for the kitchen? Or not. :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

Cute. I need to learn that saying - the kitchen is closed!!!!!!!!!!!

angie said...

I think there's a conspiracy going on.....because I've been getting that question every morning from my kids too. Nothing has changed, yet they act like it has. :)

Oz Girl said...

Oh I feel every momma's pain right now, I really do. Thank goodness I don't have a youngun' asking me that question every morning... but I paid my dues, trust me!! ;)

Duchess said...

That's a good breakfast menu :0)
