I don’t know about you, but I can be grumpy all day if my morning starts off wrong. When my kids are demanding cookies (yes, cookies) the second their feet hit the floor, and the dishes from last night are still on the counter, sometimes I just want to surrender. At 7:00am.
It really helps to have a quick breakfast ready to go. That’s one less decision to make. And if I’m serving instant oats, I don’t even get any extra dishes dirty!
