Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Smile, You're Eating Yogurt!

A lot of mornings I am rushing around (doesn't matter if I get up earlier or not, the time seems to slip by me). Breakfast during the week gets pretty standard. Yesterday, I felt bad about handing them off breakfast to eat while I got a shower. (Although, having them eating breakfast while I get a shower is self defense. Otherwise I have little faces peaking in to see what I'm doing and why I'm not done yet.)

So yesterday, I tried something that was super fast, but hoped it would reinforce to the kids that mommy does take time for them and loves them (just not them peaking into the shower while I'm in there). My kids love eating yogurt, so I thought I would use that as the surprise.

I had vanilla yogurt, which I placed into bowls. For the one on the left, I added in the smiley face using blueberries. For the one on the right, I used slices of kiwi for the eyes and blueberries for the nose and mouth.

Today, I didn't do the faces and they both asked me where the smiley face was, so I guess they liked them!


  1. My kids would love this!

  2. I'm glad you like! Welcome to the site, I'm glad you found me!


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
