My kids made breakfast in bed for me and for my husband Alan last weekend. They handed us menus of the different breakfast foods that were in the house. The night before, my 11-year-old son asked his father to buy bacon for his breakfast in bed the next morning. I was surprised how eagerly Alan went to the store to buy this item.
The children set up a CD player and asked where the classical music was. They put the CD into the player and made sure they knew how to work it the next morning, so that we could have classical music with our breakfast.
I’ve slowly taught my children to cook over the years. Cracking eggs was one of those messier things to learn. My son Stephen is now quite good at it, so I didn’t even need to get out of bed at all for a hearty breakfast to be served.
It didn’t matter that the toast was cold and that the eggs were overcooked—it was the thought that mattered. The kids did it by themselves for the first time ever. And they grinned from ear to ear as they brought in the trays and placed them on the bed.
