Books … for Breakfast!

Here’s a great way to get your child to the breakfast table fast in the morning:

When he goes to bed at night, have him pick out a handful of his favorite books.  Picture books are great for this, no matter the age of the child, because kids just want to eat and enjoy in the morning like Mom and Dad do.

Put the books on the kitchen table where he’ll have breakfast in the morning and decide which one he wants to “read” first (this works great for kids who are not yet reading).  In the morning, you just may be surprised how happily he comes to the table …

Tell him, “OK!  Time to get up!  Get dressed and then you can enjoy the books you picked out.”

You’re such a fun mom!
