While I enjoy making things myself rather than buying then pre-made, but the reality is, I’m no super mom. By any means. To be honest, my goal in life is to kind of be the anti-Super Mom. I want to make being a mom easier and childhood more fun, but not at the expense of my sanity – because let’s be honest, I have 2 little mongrels sucking up every last ounce of it as it is.
Because of this, I’m constantly on a mission to find simple ways to make average things more fun for my kids. In the end, I want my kids to look back and be like, “Wow, I thought I had a totally normal childhood but my mom was freaking awesome.” A little much? Okay, but you get what I mean. I try to infuse our days with little special moments that don’t take much work on my end but bring joy to theirs.
Which brings us to frozen waffles. Didn’t see that one coming, did you? (that is, unless you read the title of this post, at which point I’m assuming this was the inevitable next step.) Frozen waffles are pretty much the perfect base for fun kid food. They’re kind of boring and versatile, but it’s still a waffle which kids love. They’re relatively affordable and these days you can find so many different kinds out there that will fit your needs – gluten-free, whole grain, packed with hidden veggies, chocolate chip, blueberry – whatever your little heart desires, it’s probably out there.
After I made my post about turning toast into a fun breakfast, my mind started reeling thinking about other simple things I could turn into fun food. The obvious progression was waffles, partially because I enjoy waffles and partially because they’re the perfect shape for a bunch of cool things. My list got kind of long thinking about all of the fun things I could make, but today I’m just sharing 5 of my favorites that I made for the boys over the past few weeks. So grab a box of frozen waffles and get a toastin’ – your kids are going to love these!
