1. Start With A Delicious Breakfast. I have found that how we start our morning sets the tone for our entire day. When we have a rushed morning it makes the rest of our day pretty crazy. I try to schedule our morning’s so that we can have a slow start and enjoy our breakfast. Sadie’s breakfast item of choice is waffles and we love Eggo Blueberry Waffles. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it is so important to teach your kids from a young age to properly fuel their bodies. Lord knows they are going to need energy to tackle their busy toddler day. Eggo is now made with No Artificial Flavors. Colors from Natural Sources, which this mama can appreciate. Look for the packaging with the green banner!
2. Plan For Things To Go Wrong: Be Flexible. Not to say you need to be a “Debbie Downer”, but realize that your child is not an adult. They don’t understand schedule’s and to-do list’s like we do. Go ahead and give yourself wiggle room for things to not go as planned. If you have in your mind that things can and probably WILL go wrong, you will be pleasantly surprised if they don’t and you won’t feel like you’ve been thrown a curve ball if they do.
3. Get Out Of The House. Whether it is going to the park to swing and play, going on a walk or a hike, to a museum or even a movie, just get out of the house. Your child will appreciate the fresh air and you will too! Plus it’s a great way for them to get the wiggles out!
4. Don’t Be Afraid To Get On Their Level & Get Messy. Sometimes all your child needs is for you to drop the dishes or laundry and roll around on the floor with them. Open all of the playdough containers and make a mess on the table. Pull all the toys out of their bins and play on the floor. Be on their level for a while. They will appreciate it and you will be so glad you did. Messy house and all. Trust me.
5. If All Else Fails, Have Snacks. My mom used to make waffles with strawberry yogurt frozen on them. It was a favorite around our house and was always so refreshing after a busy afternoon playing in the yard. It is a fun way to have breakfast food outside of the traditional breakfast setting.
You can easily recreate this snack with just a few ingredients that you probably already have on hand. All you need is Eggo Buttermilk Waffles (or any flavor waffle of your choice) and yogurt! See below for full instructions on how to recreate this yummy and refreshing little snack! We picked ours up at Target.
