A sponsored post for Woolworths Select Speedy Oats
Like the many Mum’s before me, and many that will follow after me, each and every day I try to start the day anew. I push aside the inevitable bad nights sleep. I stretch out the sore muscles that have been kicked by a little person at some stage in the night. I gratefully take the hot cup of coffee that my husband gives me and when I’m properly awake, I feed my children their breakfast.
I’m on auto pilot, thinking a little about what I’ll make versus what they would like to be eating. The inevitable request for pancakes or jam toast denied and protests soothed. Questions about body parts answered, homework readers read, fights put out.
The porridge is placed before them both. Both with yoghurt and fruit, one with a drizzle of honey.
I sip tea and chat. Sign notes. Make lunches. And stand and wait.
The big one eats it. She’s hungry. And big.
And then the little one, after picking off the yoghurt and the honey and a few bananas as well, she’s done. In the way only a 3 year old can be done.
And you go back and forth and back again, then resign yourself to that fact that another meal is done. You clean up, stack the dishwasher, wipe the bench, clean up and go and face the battle of getting dressed for School. That job, done.
Woolworths Select have a new range of Speedy Oats available in store now. They are however, speedy, and not magical, especially when 3 year olds are involved. But they do taste very good as last minute leftovers shoved into a Mothers mouth before clean up.
Do you guys eat your own breakfast or just end up eating your kids leftovers? Or is that just me?
