brekky lucky dip


The very creative and ever optimistic (opportunistic?) Meg made this the other day. It's a breakfast lucky dip box. Inside there were a number of breakfast 'tickets'. On each one there was a breakfast option:

soup
porridge
cereal
bacon
fruits
egg
hot dog
rice ball
yoghurt
curry rice

I had to raise my eyebrows at some of those options- we never just eat soup or bacon or egg for brekky. And as for hot dogs and curry rice? Never!

So we all took our turn at the lucky dip and came up with porridge (me), bacon (meg) rice ball (amy) and soup (k).

"What do we do now Meg?" I asked wanting to prolong the game.

"We put them all on the kitchen table and go and play while Mummy makes it all!"

??!

Say what?

After I picked my jaw up off the floor I regained my wits and acquiesced on one condition- we add a further option:

no breakfast until everyone has helped clean the house including wiping the windows down inside and out.

Funnily enough there was rapid agreement to shelve the brekky lucky dip idea and settle on a one-meal-feeds-all menu.

Still, ten points for the idea, yeah?

ROFL!!

I wonder, is this something that came up at school? I came home from teaching my evening class to find that my boys had written their breakfast orders on the blackboard!
