He Finally Gets My Waffles

Smashing a waffle into his eye

There's a good chance that the title of this post is misleading. Miloh may have had homemade waffles from me, but I forget if he has. So I'm counting this as the first time.

If you've been reading since a bit before Miloh was born you'd know that, in this post, I was trying to figure out how waffles could be my breakfast thing for Miloh.

Well I saw a great feature on the Paula & Paula blog which was called Breakfast International. Honestly, and without hyperbole, I think it's one of the best features I've seen on a blog. I am for some reason always interested in what people in other countries do for breakfast.

Maybe it's because I'm all over the place with mine. Sometimes I do full on meals, sometimes almost nothing. But my fave breakfast is espresso and a great scone or croissant. Problem is great espresso and pastries are hard to find... And it's not a nutritious breakfast.

Along those lines I found it really interesting that few of the folks participating have what Americans would consider a nutritious breakfast. You know, the stuff you see in cereal commercials; cereal, milk, OJ, some kind of meat and fruit.

I realize that's a lofty goal for breakfast that few attain... But sometimes I feel we're not doing the best for Miloh when we don't  have the picture perfect table. So it was nice to see a great range...

Anyway I tweeted that I loved the idea and was asked to participate.

And so Miloh got my waffles because I thought it was a great time to start a little breakfast tradition with him.

I'll added one teaser pic here but you can see more at Paul & Paula's.

What do you all do for breakfast for your kids? For you?

  1. Topher's thing is pancakes so most Sundays he makes a double batch, then I serve the toaster oven reheated version to Piper throughout the week, typically with scrambled eggs. She refuses milk so has apple juice with water (50/50).

    But. Some days she just has dry cheerios. Or toast. But only if it's homemade bread. She's a bit spoiled with a baking enthusiast for a mother.

    I usually have coffee and possibly some toast or oatmeal. Boring.

    Maybe i'll try my hand at croissants...

  4. @mae a double batch and freezer is my plan for future weeks. Also you should send me croissants when you make them. Thanks.

    @katie what's Eoghans? Also I've done chocolate cake for my breakfast at times and then sung the Bill Cosby song in my head.

I finished this about a year ago just for my personal use but thought I'd share it. It's a visualization of MF's first year in n...
