We love Waffle Wednesday

Since the beginning of 2011 we've had a breakfast schedule that has made my life so much easier and significantly reduced whining. Monday--Muffins, Tuesday--Oatmeal, Wednesday--Waffles, Thursday--Toast and Fruit, Friday--French Toast, Saturday--Cereal, Sunday--Cinnamon Rolls. As you can see we are kind of fond of alliterations but not fond enough to skip oatmeal, though there are some in the family who wouldn't mind.

I originally put waffles on Wednesday because I think it's nice to have something to look forward to in the middle of the week. The alliteration was just serendipity.

Ruth you are the cutest mommy in the world. I love the alliteration.

Lizzy lou-- thanks for making me look cool in front of all the YW. They thought it was AMAZING that I knew about the Adam Young/Taylor Swift connection. :)

We've been doing a breakfast schedule to reduce whining and complaining for several years now (and funny enough, I thought I got the idea from you--have you not done this in the past?).

Ours doesn't incorporate alliteration, though, and we actually have oatmeal twice (its a HUGE favorite around here). I always forget about muffins--that would be a good addition (except then I have to get up earlier. . . hmm.)

And here I feel all accomplished if I toast an Eggo frozen waffle for Tucker on the weekend. Bonus points if it's before 9:00 am.

(It's really about time I start steppin' up my game!)

Ruth, you are so out of my league. For one - no one leaves the house to go anywhere except Nathan, so I should be able to make a nice breakfast, right? Well, most mornings we eat cereal. For two - am I the only one who had to look up "alliteration" to know what you were talking about?! I love that you are this way. Your kiddos are lucky. (And Bill too, obviously.)

Oh, Ruth, I'm way ahead of you here. We've had a breakfast schedule for years now: Monday - Cereal, Tue - Cereal, Wed - Cereal, Thurs - Cereal, Fri- Cereal, Sat - Cereal, Sun - Cereal. Haha. You really do impress me. What a lucky family you have!

I love that the one day a week you aren't breaking your neck to get the kids out the door to school is the day you feed them cereal. Hilarious!

As always, you inspire me.
