Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed

Everyone knows that moms play a vital part in keeping their families going. Whether she’s a working mom, stay-at-home mom, or a combination of both, mothers play many roles in the home. And adding to that, many of their tasks are invisible ones. They often take on the mental load of appointments, lists and logistics needed to manage the needs of everyone in the house.

This past year has posed a new and unique challenge to moms everywhere. Many mothers have spent the past 12 months juggling their work and household responsibilities while trying to manage their children’s schooling and care.

For families that have chosen to do online school, it means providing tech support, monitoring the kids to ensure their on-task, and playing the role of an educator as well as a parent. For those who have chosen in-person school, it means contending with the constant disruptions of cancelled classes and sick children that must stay home or require health testing.

Moms are full of love for their families, but there’s a lot of pressure on them, particularly now. Even simple pleasures for special days like a dinner out, a celebration with extended family, or an appointment for a massage are all off the table.

So this year, treat the special mom in your life to a Mother’s Day breakfast in bed and a morning to relax and look after herself. We’ve rounded up a list of quick and kid-friendly breakfast recipes, ideal for little hands and short attention spans, won’t keep mom waiting or make a huge mess in the kitchen.
