A complete and utter circus.
That is what is going on at our house as the sun dips into they sky and my boys think the party is just getting started.
Fresh from baths, full with their evening snacks, and relaxed with several stories, one would think they would be ready to go to sleep. But, nope…
They keep coming out and coming out of their rooms. One after the other. For hours…I am not kidding.
I have begged. I have pleaded. I have set up rewards. I have dolled out consequences.
And NOTHING works.
Did I mention, I have even tried driving down bumpy country roads in hopes that they will fall asleep?
Please, please send me some sage advice on how to keep my boys in their beds?
For now, however, I am drinking my own Ice Coffee in an effort to stay awake….
Oh—and eating my very favorite, easy breakfast to boot.
Here’s What You Need Ice Coffee:
1 cup of brewed coffee (I like to use a flavored kind like coconut or french toast from Keurig)
3/4 -1 cup of skim milk
½ cup of ice
¼-1/4 tsp of vanilla
Cinnamon (I love the good kind from Penzey’s)
Here’s What You Do:
Smash the avocado and then spread it onto the toast. Top with the sliced tomatoes and season generously with salt and pepper and drizzle lightly with EVOO.
Try the toast with the avocado* (My kids hate tomatoes –a trait inherited from their daddy!)
The Skinny on Avocados:
- Monounsaturated fat (Ie: the good kind that lowers bad cholestoral levels)
- Tons of Vitamin E (Immune booster and great for the skin and heart)
- Lutein (Great for protecting eye health)
