When I had children I always knew I wanted to create a few traditions for them, lovely little rituals they might want to recreate with their own family once they’d grown and flown, and things they’d remember fondly even as adults.
Step forward, Pancake Saturdays!
This ‘treat’ breakfast has crept more and more into our weekends, and whilst so simple, is something we really look forward to.
Freddie and Sasha are now old enough to sit at our breakfast bar on the big stools (a treat in itself when you’re 4 and 2), and they sit and chat to us whilst helping whip up some batter, and squeal in delight as Adam and I attempt a bit of (dodgy) flipping! Whilst I’m definitely a traditional lemon and sugar kinda girl, the children are Nutella all the way, which makes this an extra special breakfast as it’s something they’re only allowed every now and then.
With them sitting closer whilst we cook, we find we all chat more, they are in good spirits and it really sets us up for the weekend and puts a smile on our face.
Do you have any special weekend, or family rituals?
