Breakfast On the Go




I have said it before, mornings are crazy around here. This is due mostly to the fact that the Little Men have to catch the bus pretty early and well, frankly, I don't want to get up at the butt crack of dawn. So we sleep until the last possible minute, leaving barely just enough time to get them up, dressed, fed, and off to school.

Breakfast and putting on shoes are the two time suckers. While breakfast is an obvious place to use up time, don't ask me why putting on shoes is the other. There is no good reason. Notice I said putting on shoes, not finding them. The shoes are always there. I am this close to only buying slip on shoes. 

So slip on shoes will solve that issue. 

What to do about breakfast? What to do? What to do?

Well a portable breakfast of course. Cereal in a cup to me more precise. 




Cereal in a cute cup nonetheless. These Kellogg's cereal cups are adorable. You guys know how I love myself some good packaging. They are easy to grab on the go. You just peel back the paper and start eating with or without milk. Half of my kids eat cereal with milk and the other half prefer cereal dry.
Either way these cups make it so I don't have to clean up any bowls. Thinking beyond the bowl means I can go back to bed one those sweet children of mine head out the door. Can I get a virtual high five?
"CLAP"
That was us high-fiving.
I did try to make our cereal-in-a-cup breakfast a little bit special by adding a coordinating plastic spoon and a fun patterned paper napkin. The cereal, spoons, and napkins all came from Walmart.  Package up the cereal the night before. Set out everything (but the milk of course) out on a tray.
That way when it is breakfast time all you have to do is shove the tray at them. Er, I mean stand lovingly with the tray in hand and offer them breakfast. Yes that is what I meant.
One might even have to hand it to them on the way out the door.
Have I said how great it is that these cups of cereal are easy to take on the go. They can even eat them at the bus stop.
No matter how the kiddos eat it, it is a time saver. They also make great snacks on the go too. Bean loved having his own cup of Fruit Loops just as a snack in the car on the way to the library.
So in our kitchen, on the way to the bus stop, or in the car we loved ourselves these cups of cereal.
With Summer coming school might be out, but that doesn't mean that our life isn't getting crazier. I am keeping lots of Kellogg cereal in a cup around. We have a pretty lengthy car trip coming up. You better believe I am packaging up some of these. These will help me make the most of my time and Make The Most of my Summer.

So far summer hasn’t officially started for one of my kids since she opted, voluntarily, to do 2 weeks of summer school. Usually we spend a ton of time outdoors and at the beach during the summer so once school is out completely for her that’s where we’ll be.
