A Fool of Myself

Oatmeal: Breakfast of Champions


Oh, how the little one loves oatmeal. I have given up trying to avert him from my own bowl every morning and given in to making him his own.

So now there is the pre-breakfast banana and milk when he gets up with Typografika, and when I get up, there is breakfast breakfast. My recipe: 1/4 cup of cooked oats; small spoonfuls of flax seed, peanut butter, and honey; and an ice cube.

As you can see from the pictures, he is eating it on his own. Don’t be deceived: he holds the spoon in one hand while eating it with the other hand. Which results in quite possibly the biggest mess in the world. Today was so messy that he got a bath before we went to church.

But what’s a mom to do? I don’t believe I ever imagined how well I could tolerate a mess when someone so cute was making it.
