Kidzworld Kitchen: Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed

May 01, 2014

Let’s face it! We are not always as nice to our mothers as we should be. It’s easy to forget that the meals don’t cook themselves, the laundry doesn’t magically get folded and fairies aren’t cleaning the house. For most of us, it’s mom that is doing all that behind the scenes stuff for us. It’s a lot of tough work and she does it with a smile and lots of love. So it really is the least we can do to give these lovely mamas one single day a year to be pampered and treated like queens. So grab a pretty bouquet of fresh flowers, write a special note in a card and bring her a fantastic breakfast in bed she won’t soon forget!

All the recipes and instructions you’ll need are right here to start her Mother’s Day off with a bang. Oh, and don’t forget to clean the kitchen when you’re done. Moms hate a mess.

Egg Mom Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 slices cooked bacon (Hint! Pre-cooked bacon is available in the meat section of your grocery store. It’s simple, tidy and requires only a few seconds in the microwave)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup finely sliced green onion

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
