One of my two goals for this year was to have breakfast as a family every morning. This is a hard one for me as I don't like to get up in the morning. However, so far, so good. We've had breakfast every morning.
What a difference breakfast has made! Red Chief is happier. He loves getting up to see what I am making for him. It makes him feel special and loved.
It also gives me a great start in the morning. Since I'm in the kitchen anyway, I usually end up doing some dishes and tidying up a bit. Since we've started having breakfast together, the kitchen has been much cleaner! It also gives me the momentum that I need to carry over to other areas of the house.
The last, and best, part is that we all get to spend half an hour together in the morning.
Family breakfast: definitely worth sacrificing an extra hour of sleep.
