Yes, sadly it’s September 2nd and it’s back to the old school grind; early to rise, no more leisurely morning breakfasts–my daughter bolting out of bed at the crack of 6am- she sets her alarm every night- and wakes me up! I know it’s supposed to be the other way around- but really I am NOT a morning person. So if like me you’re more upset about the kids going back to school because that means you’ve got to get back into a morning routine- I feel your pain!
The only bright spot I can find in this whole back to school routine is that each night- we MUST engage in our once-a-day mandatory eat dinner together as a family so we can catch up on the day’s events and SPILL all the good, bad and ugly (for me that dinner is a block of time I look forward to all day long.) Of course my kids are not as enthusiastic as I am about these family dinners- that is- UNLESS I’m serving Breakfast for Dinner!
Because there is nothing tastier than a sweet treat, and no easier way to get kids in a relaxed and happy-go-lucky-I-feel-like-talking-mood than a plate of Pancakes loaded with chocolate chips. That’s right- there is no shame in my parenting game- I’ will use every trick in the book to get my kids talking and interacting with me. And keep reading for 12 Breakfast for Dinner dishes I’ve curated for your quick reference that can be a great substitute for a school night dinner that could use an extra injection of fun! read more »
