I don't know what I would do without my son's grandparents, otherwise known as my parents. Since I work from home, I usually need a little help keeping my son occupied when I have articles to write, so they each very kindly come over at least one day a week. I feel like nothing I could ever do could repay them for all the help and love they give to my family, but perhaps one way would be to celebrate Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 8 by looking for Grandparents Day breakfast ideas. Since my kid isn't in school yet, my parents won't get to go to his school cafeteria for a celebratory breakfast for at least four more years. So let's bring the celebratory breakfast to my house.
I feel like providing a really delicious breakfast for them is the least I can do since they do so much for my family. But thankfully, they do get a little bit of benefit from seeing their grandson every week — like the potential for living longer. But other than that, I want to give them a delicious breakfast along with some really sweet Grandparents Day gifts to show how much we love and appreciate them.
