As you know, I love to bring my kids into the kitchen. They especially love making breakfast which I am 100% encouraging because once I’m comfortable with them making breakfast, that means I DON’T HAVE TO MAKE BREAKFAST.

Remember in school when you learned about the three “R’s? You know…reduce, reuse, recycle? (In case you forgot!) Our kids are learning all about this too, but it’s changed.
