Ice Cream for Breakfast
It was my birthday and my kids and I added ice cream to our breakfast menu. They were so tickled at the idea of eating something so bad for breakfast. (I am usually “mean mom” and make them eat fruit, eggs, or cereal for our morning meal.)
Since my daughter’s first birthday, we have celebrated birthdays with a breakfast cupcake. Due to the fact that I am the only one who is old enough to bake cupcakes (and I didn’t get any baked the day before), ice cream was definitely the next best option for my special day.
Upholding the breakfast treat tradition is important to my kids and I. Upholding any tradition that adds special emphasis to life events is always important to uphold.
Think about a tradition you celebrate with your family and friends that is unique to you. Savor those memories and make plans to keep them alive and well in your relationships. The dependability of those simple gestures or actions enhances your connections with those that share them.
What is your special tradition or ritual? How do you make special days extra special with those that you love?
If you don’t have a tradition, I highly recommend ice cream for breakfast. 🙂
