Guess what is happening at our house?
We are having breakfast every morning without playing let’s make a deal. My Little Guy is getting up and getting dressed without fussing due to his clothes being ready the day before! And two weeks ago we added weekly breakfast and lunch planning to make mornings even more magical. I love it!
On Sunday afternoon Little Guy and I sit down to plan his menu for the week. The rules are that one protein and one vegetable or fruit has to be present in each meal plan. Soda, flavored milks and candy are not an option. These are considered treats at our house. I do give him a couple of ideas and I also tell him what fruits and vegetables we have on hand for the week. He is not a fan of vegetables but we work on this habit at dinner time and will have another family Veggie Boot Camp this summer. ( There will be a post on this in the next week.)
I used Microsoft Word to create this page to hang on the bulletin board. I would like to find a dry erase board later once Little Guy gets into this habit for more than one month. Having it printed makes it less negotiable. Once its is printed it is Momma Law. So far, my son is really enjoying choosing his own meals within the guidelines.
We are loving our magical mornings! No more fussing!
peace and popcorn,
