how to eat your food

Every morning seems like an instructional video on how to eat your food in my house.

Every. Morning.

Pick that up. Put it in your mouth. No. Just sit there. Chew it. You have to swallow. Now put in another bite. WHY? Because you have to.

No, eat that too. You like that. Eat it. Chew and swallow.

Why? Because we have to leave for school in 10 minutes that’s why.

I would have thought that by the age of 5 my child would have retained the mastery of how to eat, but apparently in the morning all that goes out the window.

My child… not a morning person.

(psst. neither am I)

    Pop tarts are a mom’s best friend. They can take them to the bus with them (or on the walk to school). We go through this every morning too!

    Count me among the morning Zombies. My youngest is just like you described but my oldest wakes up everyday at the ass crack of dawn all chipper and ready to tackle the world.Trust me that is worse.

    I very seldom want to eat in the morning. I just can’t face it. But, since she is burning up energy, going to school and all that, it is important. Poor K. Maybe, someday, she will surrender to the inevitable.

    She STILL does that? Stinks. I hate the morning too. I can’t eat first thing in the am either. Poor K, can’t figure out how to eat! hee..hee…

    Oh, darlin. You have my deepest sympathies. I don’t want to deal with no one nor nothin’ in the a.m.Especially kidders who don’t wan to eat they breakfast. High-fives and hugs, mamacita.

  9. Shannon says:

    Same thing here, one of mine is more than happy to chew all the flavor out, but after that, what’s the point? I also am not a morning person.

    does 1 am count as being a morning person? cuz i’m a 1am’er now, thank you blogosphere. and, bad news. it gets worse at 8. they suddenly don’t know how to put their clothes on.

  11. CamiKaos says:

    holly: I can see that. She’ll be 6 in a few months and sometime after learning to put on her socks at 2 and her tights on at 4 she has forgotten how to do both of those. And if 1 am counted as a morning person I’d be there with you.troy: Yes, plus I bet wonderdog is crazy in the morning too ;)shannon: I’m sorry dear what did you say, it’s 7am… I am not awake yet.123valeries: I think after I drop the kid off at school I am going to nap… I will take that high five when I wake up though :)
