Breakfast in Bed


My kids made breakfast in bed for me and for my husband Alan last weekend. They handed us menus of the different breakfast foods that were in the house. The night before, my 11-year-old son asked his father to buy bacon for his breakfast in bed the next morning. I was surprised how eagerly Alan went to the store to buy this item.

I’ve slowly taught my children to cook over the years. Cracking eggs was one of those messier things to learn. My son Stephen is now quite good at it, so I didn’t even need to get out of bed at all for a hearty breakfast to be served.

It didn’t matter that the toast was cold and that the eggs were overcooked—it was the thought that mattered. The kids did it by themselves for the first time ever. And they grinned from ear to ear as they brought in the trays and placed them on the bed.

    I love this! It’s so hard sometimes to just let the kids find ways to serve you and then do just that–let them serve you! I find it’s easy to forget that they also find joy in serving and I can easily steal that joy. Great job! Your kids look so proud!

    My kids love to do this. They spend a long time planning each opportunity to serve breakfast in bed.
