As if my have-to-be-to-work-by-8 a.m. mornings aren’t enough, my children incessantly beg for breakfast. “I’m so hungry.” “I want cereal and juice.”
So, it got me thinking. What if I create a “kids’ cupboard,” where bowls, spoons and snacks are at their reach? Would it empower them to serve themselves or do they need mom to cater to them?
In this cupboard, I would place granola bars, fruit snacks, Nutri-grain bars and Cheese-its. Or, is this the precusor to “I’m not hungry” at dinner time?
The convenience of a kids’ cupboard is tempting. But is it worth the “I’m not hungry” at dinner?
What do you think?
