A Kid Friendly Recipe For Mother's Day Breakfast In Bed & Sweepstakes

A simple recipe for kids to make for their moms for breakfast in bed on Mother's day.

  Mothers day is a special day for me. My kids love serving me breakfast in bed on Mothers day and I love that they do. The only problem is breakfast in bed in never enjoyable when there is a mess in the kitchen that mom has to clean up afterward. I remember one Mother's day, my oldest daughter made muffins and with the help of her brothers served them to me in bed. It was so special until I walked into the kitchen. The kitchen was a mess. We had to leave for church in ten minutes and the kitchen had to be cleaned because it was ant season. If I left the kitchen a mess, there would be tons of ants when we arrived home after church. That stress just was too much for me. The following year I told my kids how much I would love a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast in bed on Mother's day. That idea meant they could still serve me breakfast in bed and there would be no mess in the kitchen. Bagels and cream cheese have been my standard Mother's day breakfast for many years. This year I discovered a simple recipe for my younger boys to make for my breakfast in bed as one can only enjoy bagels so much. I love that this simple recipe not only tastes so delicious, but it is so much healthier than bagels. My boys can also prepare this yogurt parfait without any help. I love that I get breakfast in bed without a messy kitchen!
