With two boys, my morning can get a little bit hectic. There is so much to do that I find myself feeling behind even when I try my best to plan. Seems there is always some last minute thing to do like find someone’s lost something, sign a school paper that no one told me I even had to sign or be there to referee an argument.
I try to be “that mom” who has it all together, but somehow I don’t think “that mom” really even exists. Who am I kidding? No one has it ALL together, especially in the mornings. While I would love to make sure the boys get sent out the door with some form of nutrition in them that often doesn’t happen. There just isn’t enough time. That’s why Carnation Breakfast Essentials® has really been a God-send.
If you haven’t discovered Carnation Breakfast Essentials® or you have known about it but haven’t given it a try, you are missing out! I can whip up this Chocolate Strawberry and Banana Breakfast Shake in no time flat and the boys love it because it’s almost like mom is giving them a milkshake in the morning. Little do they know, I have added the secret weapon for making sure they get some nutrition as well.
