ABC: Back to School Breakfast

The first week back to school around here is always filled with excitement, expectations and a little bit of uncertainty and anxiety so we have a tradition of sending my boys off with a fun breakfast.  I love, love, love to make fun things out of pancakes for my boys and for the the first day of school we have an ABC back to school breakfast.Back to School Breakfast

Back to School Breakfast

This is one of those breakfasts that is simple to make yet your kids will love.  I know we don’t have a lot of time in the mornings to get breakfast made.  For this, I just mix up some “just add water” pancake mix and pour it into a condiment bottle.  I  knew that I didn’t have the skills to do it with just a spoonful of batter so I pulled out the same condiment bottles that I had previously used to fill with our homemade snow cone syrup, filled them with pancake batter, and they worked perfectly for writing.

To my 5th grader,

Today was the first day of your last year in elementary school.  You’re the oldest at school now.  The kings of the castle.  As I took your younger brothers to find their teachers and line up with their classes, I watched as you headed off on your own with your friends.  I planned on making sure you made it to the correct line and getting your picture (against your will), but by the time I had your brothers settled, your teacher had already headed inside.

3 Ways to Become a Superhero Family

What is a Superhero?  Everyone will tell you that a superhero is someone who helps people and has super powers.  But, what is a Superhero Family and how can your family become a Superhero family?

Superhero Family

With four boys in our family, it’s an understatement to say that superheroes are a big deal around here. We own just about every superhero costume and toy there is.

In just a week, our family will be soaking in the Florida sun at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel for a Family Forward retreat thanks to Mom it Forward. We will get the chance to build our family bond and will learn ways to make our family a “Superhero” family. I asked my boys what it means to become a Superhero Family.  Here are their answers: (Aren’t they cute!)

So how can we become a Superhero Family?

3 Ways to become a Superhero Family

  1. Help Each Other - When I asked my boys how our family could become a Superhero family, they all answered in the same way: Help each other.  Superheroes help people in need.  They protect and defend those who are in trouble.  As a family we need to be willing to help each other.
  2. Fight the Bad Guys together- There will come a time where every family will encounter “bad guys”.  Our family members need to know that we will always be there to protect each other from bullies.  We can stick up for each other and always have each others’ back.
  3. Focus on each family member’s “powers” – Each member of a family has their own unique “super powers”.   We need to make sure each family member knows that their individual talents or “powers” are important and that when we use them together we are stronger.
