breakfast parfaits

We are small business owners and have SIX children in our home. Unfortunately, NONE of my children like to sleep in. Not a single one! I am lucky if they sleep past 6 am. I have to admit sometimes breakfast is a little chaotic. I am in desperate need to streamline my mornings. Not only to take care of my six kids, but to take care of myself.

A cup of coffee can’t cut it any more. I am eliminating my excuses with a little bit of easy prep work. I am making a new resolution to prep a little for a lot of success! In the kitchen, in laundry, in routines, and in every area of life, I am looking for ways to implement this new resolution to do a little prep for a lot of success. I am starting off the year with purpose and a plan. They aren’t huge, ridiculous resolutions. Just manageable steps, like prepping for Build-your-own Breakfast Parfaits with Post Cereals Great Grains, to make my new year the most amazing for not just me, but my entire family. I am kick-starting the year well by kick-starting my day with a nutritious breakfast for myself and my family.

When I tell you breakfast needs to be simple, filling, and nutritious I am NOT kidding! The importance of breakfast cannot be overstated. When my children and I have a good breakfast our whole day flows a lot smoother.

We love Post Cereal for a great breakfast that contains fiber that prepares your body for the day and keeps you full until lunch. And they have whole grains that are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants. Plus there are plenty of delicious options to choose from. I always stock up on our family favorites while at Walmart. Our current favorites are Great Grains (with 36 grams of whole grain per serving & 20% of your daily value for fiber), Honey Bunches of Oats Honey Roasted (An awesome combination of textures and flavors that my kids love! It’s also incredibly heart healthy with 0 grams of trans fat, saturated fat.) & Grape Nuts (A morning staple, and has been for over 100 years.).

Build-your-own Kid Breakfast Parfaits are a delicious and fun breakfast! With a little prep work on Sunday the ingredients for these Build-your-own kid breakfast parfaits will be your new favorite breakfast. Containers of diced fruit, yogurt, nuts, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and cereal are laid out on the counter. Each child can build their own parfait for breakfast. The kids love having the ability to choose, I love that they are learning to help themselves, and Big Bonus… I LOVE them too!

I let each child choose what will be in their parfait. The older children help gather all of the ingredients and they love building their own parfaits. The younger children pretty much boss me around… Ha! But they love that I let them have control over their breakfast. 

These parfaits are so customizable. You can vary ingredients to whatever is in your pantry/fridge or favorite of the family.

Four Indoor Activities with Goldfish, a Pencil, Paper & a Ruler

When it’s too dark or too cold to play outside during the winter months I am not sure who goes more crazy…. Me or the SIX children living in my home!!!! 


We spend a LOT of time outdoors. I love being outside. And I LOVE when my kids are outside. They get energy out, they explore their world, they develop motor skills, they make-believe, and so much more! Plus, my house doesn’t get destroyed when they are outside. So it’s a WIN for me! Read more

5 Ways Moms Can Make the Most Out of Their Commute

**I was given a chance to drive a Mazda CX-3 for a review. The thoughts and opinions are my own.

We recently purchased a small business since moving to Texas. It’s been a new adventure for me. The combination of a salon and boutique. (The boutique is also online.) For the first time since Jayden was born I am going into work several days a week. I have been a work at home mom for more than 8 years now. Getting in the car and leaving my babies has been a new experience!


My hat is off to you mommas that have been doing this for years! You are ROCK STARS! Read more

There is so much pressure on us to be perfect and to create elaborate, magical displays of ornate Christmas decorations, bake delicious and festive foods, and attend every party, event and program that one can possibly squeeze into a month. And honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming.  Read more
