Breakfast of reluctant champions

I have received so many emails and calls about my blog entry from this past week regarding Spencer and his Corned Beef Hash breakfast. Even my mom called to "inventory" my breakfast selections so that her "darling grandson" had adequate protein in the morning and not just a poptart.....
Now I admit, I don't "cook" breakfast unless it is a weekend. So now that we are back to school, Spencer's breakfast choices are limited to things that are fast and simple. Here is Friday morning's breakfast:

The bacon is the precooked kind that I can re-heat in the microwave for 20 seconds, a slice of toast, milk and fruit. No omelet station. No waffle irons. No kidding.
If Betty Crocker was a single mom with a kick ass job-- this is how HER kid would eat, too!

I hear you about the breakfast thing. You are better than I am. Alana makes her own. I have to make sure she has choices available,

This just cracks me up--the heater and Spencer with his eyes shut-- too funny.

that's better than my kid eats some mornings. I wonder what my husband feeds her.
Toaster waffles are the best. I love van's berry whole grain ones. With bananas or blueberries.

Word . . . my kids get a pop tart if they want one or they can eat at school. Get for reals, I've got three to get motivated in the AM, I'm not cooking breakfast too!

Ummm isn't it summer over there? What's with the heater LOL

My kids stagger out of bed and fix themselves breakfast. I never from morning to morning which cereal they are having, so I make them fend for themselves :-P All I can say is we're going through Oats like there's no tomorrow!!
