I knew Monday morning was going to hit like a ton of bricks. After a weekend of sleepovers, the kids were extra tired and could hardly stand the thought of staring down a full week of school. Sometimes, it’s the littlest things that can turn a Monday around and today it came in the form of a doughy circle with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. While I would love to say our kids gulp down whole wheat cereal with a side of flax seed every morning that simply isn’t the truth (if it were, they wouldn’t be kids from this planet!). Nearly each day, Maverick looks at me and throws his hands in the air as the kids leave the breakfast counter having hardly touched their food. Smoothies, waffles, pancakes, and turkey sausage have all graced our morning table and been left uneaten. Yet this morning there were glorious donuts adorning the kids’ plates as they sat in their usual spots. Happily, they devoured their sweet breakfast treats and were off to start their day. It may not be the recommended breakfast of champions, but starting a Monday off sweet sent everyone rolling happily into the week.
