What did YOU have for breakfast?

I'm eating an apple. But that's just because I really want to have brownies and milk and I think if I can eat the apple and get ready before I need to leave for tutoring I can have the brownies and milk. So here I sit, eating a monster apple feeling guilty. I'm not feeling guilty about the apple or the brownies, but for the lack of breakfast that my daughter had, or didn't have before she left for preschool. One bite of a granola bar. That's it. That's all she had time for. Mind you, it was a gigantic bite of granola bar because she couldn't even kiss me good-bye as she was chewing a great big chew and climbing the stairs of the bus. Then as she sat down I blew her a kiss and she blew one back, carefully, so as not to spray the seat with granola chunks. Poor, sad child. Good thing they have a snack at school. I just know she's going to nark on me when she gets there and talk about how she only had one bite of breakfast because her "mom forgot". WHATEVER! Perhaps if you got dressed when you were supposed to get dressed, and put your shoes on when you were supposed to get your shoes on! Hmm, and maybe the 10 minute search for the shoes which you had left in the van slowed you down just a bit. Ya think?

"Anywho" I better go get ready so I can have a brownie...

Savannah has one hour to get ready and she is always not ready at 8:00 she fights me every morning to get ready. Sometimes she tells me she doesn't want to eat breakfast at all and she is in all day kindergarten. So my child has gone 3 or 4 days to school w/o breakfast.
Its an age thing (I am convinced)

Advice: go talk to Jenny. Cailin is not an eater. She eats when she wants to eat. Once Jenny figured this out, her life became much easier. Justin dawdles too, it's pretty age appropriate and a sign of defiance. I stole that from one of my Aimes books.

Why are you eating an apple when you could have brownie for breakfast? As for the child that won't eat I have 2, the 3rd eats all of the time. It is not worth the battle. The next time she will either get ready faster or not have breakfast. She is not going to die, be hungry yes, not perform well at school maybe. When Spencer doesn't eat lunch before K, he is very hungry when he gets home.
