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

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
