This came home in Cooper's book bag on Friday.
It made me laugh out loud- it also made me proud that at least I have instilled in that kid the importance of starting your day off right! It was a parenting lesson learned the hard way for me.
I cannot say that breakfast in our house is always completely healthy. I am forever mortified by the time that our pediatrician asked Cooper what he had eaten for breakfast that day. The conversation went like this.
Dr. Jan- Did you eat breakfast today?
Dr. Jan- What did you have....oh wait- let me guess!! Cereal?
Dr. Jan- Pancakes?
Dr. Jan- Oatmeal?
Dr. Jan- Yogurt?
Dr. Jan- I give up- tell me what you ate for breakfast
(note at this point I am ready to crawl under the table and DIE because I know what is coming!)
Cooper (giggling)- COOKIES!!!!!
Dr. Jan was not amused.
I have always been of the belief that something is better than nothing. Clearly not in this case! Since that time- breakfast is a must in our house and it never includes cookies.
