The Cat in the Hat just came on PBS kidsin my bedroom. We can hear the theme song from the kitchen. That means breakfast time is very close to being over finished or not.
Didn't your mother ever teach you not to play with your food??
See, I use to think it was so-oo much easier to just put the kids in front of the t.v. with their food on the floor in my room. It's taken some effort but now the kids [mostly] keep their food in the kitchen. It's more peaceful that way. Food isn't everywhere to be cleaned up.
They'll be back to the kitchen when the show is over saying they are hungry-
Oh. When I was saying our breakfast prayer I prayed over our day; ...time for paperwork, a 5 mile run (getting close to the mini date!) and time for a stop at the grocery.... and a thank you for our food. Our daughter looks up after the prayer and says, "whoa, that's a lot to do today! You should have prayed not to forget to pick us up [from the bus]."
