When I was a new mom, I had images of laid-back weekend mornings cooking elaborate breakfasts of bacon, eggs, fresh-squeezed juice, the works.
Perhaps even dabbing the little one’s nose with a bit of homemade pancake batter while they cutely (and neatly, ha ha) whisked away at my side. So homey! So virtuous! So...not happening.
Now I just pray everyone will sleep really late.
Weekend mode means keep the cold cereal in an obvious spot on the counter and hold the belief six is plenty old enough to pour your own milk. (She’s quite handy, that kid.)
But I still have days where images of motherly perfection creep back in, especially once September comes. Curious if I was alone in my autumnal return to the hearth, I asked Patch readers for their best weekend breakfast ideas.
