Breakfast Blueberry Muffins

 
Do your children complain about breakfast?  From time to time all three complain about what’s on the breakfast menu.   It’s easier to convince the little ones to eat up.  But not the oldest.   At fourteen I am over reasoning about how hangry stomachs around 8:30 am will prevent her from:
Concentrating
Having energy
Resisting the urge to snack on junk food in the morning
I get it.  When I was her age I had my mind on my outfit only in the school mornings.  Plus I knew I could find someone selling a candy bar somewhere in school.  And my school even sold Chick Fila biscuits.  If I had a couple extra dollars in my pocket I could splurge on a biscuit.  I look back now and can’t believe I used to leave my mamas free, home cooked breakfast on the table. 
I have surrendered to the fight of reasoning about the goodness of breakfast to the oldest.  Choose your battles is what I say.  However, if I can’t reason perhaps I can try a different ‘strategy’.  My breakfast strategy this week is blueberry muffins.  I can add turkey bacon or sausage and eggs alongside it. Though I have a funny teenage premonition that out of spite she’ll eat them for an after school snack and still complain about breakfast.
