I have a confession. Even though I’m a stay-at-home mom with all of the kids now in school …. I still sleep in.
Terrible, awful thing right?
I feel bad about it because I should totally be getting up in the morning and helping my husband get the kids off to school but the reality is, I stink at being a morning person. I tried for about 3 weeks and successfully got up at about 7am every single day but my body (and mind) was hating me for it. I’d spend all day feeling like crud and then find myself still not able to go to sleep early.
Since I really stink at being a great morning mom (and wife), I try to make up for it by making things as easy as possible for my husband. I get their bags and clothes ready for the next day and plan out an easy breakfast that my husband doesn’t have to prepare. And since it’s getting close to Halloween, I think this is a pretty fun and easy breakfast idea for kids. Even though it looks like candy corn, it’s packed with healthy goodies including pineapple, oranges and vanilla yogurt. The candy corn topping is obviously optional since I’d never wish that morning sugar-high on any teacher. And if you are looking to really up the sugar game, try these S’MORES blossom cookies or check out how we used candy corn in our Pilgrim Popcorn.
