What's For Breakfast?

I guess, maybe, I'm hungry. While researching other blogs my stomach started growling. It actually made me think about my childhood. When I was younger, my mom used to cook us a hot breakfast complete with pancakes, sausage, eggs, grits, toast and juice. To be truthful, I really don't like breakfast food but I could go for my childhood breakfast right now.

Then I thought: Zaria does not have those many memories of a hot breakfast. Everything is rushed. We're hurrying for school so she'll grab a pop-tart. Most times she will just have a bowl of cereal and juice. Sometimes on those rare occasions when I feel like it, I will cook grilled cheese and sausage. Man, the more i write about this the more I feel like a heel. I should start getting up an hour early and prepare a good nutritious hot breakfast like my mom did.

But wait, my mom was a stay-at-home mom. She didn't work(until we were older) She didn't own a business. She didn't manage a nonprofit. She didn't plan regular children events. She didn't attend networking functions. She didn't drive. She didn't chaffeur us to after-school and Saturday events.

She had time to make a hot breakfast.

What's your excuse for not cooking breakfast? LOL


  1. OMG! I feel your pain Cheryl. I too am a busy "mom on the go" as well as fulltime working mother, fulltime student, PTA member, Girl Scouts of America volunteer, Church Sports Coordinator and Polynesian Dance instructor. I never have time to cook anything! I wonder at times if fast food chains have made us parents lazy in that area of providing for a home. The convenience of drive thru although is a genius market pitch, is it justified as the answer to dinner for our children? I feel guilty at the end of the day because I am frustrated at what message I am sending my daughter. I had home cooked meals growing up too and I feel she should deserve the same but I dont know how to incorporate that in my chaotic schedule. HELP!

  2. @ Kaye OMG! I thought I was busy. You probably have a big 'ole "S" on your chest.

  3. I like Scramble's and Grilled Cheese for breakfast. It is very yummy.
