Yesterday was a friend’s birthday. She’d come to stay along with her husband and three children – all under 7, all of whom get up at 6 on the dot.
What do children want to do on Mummy’s birthday? Well they want to give her breakfast in bed.
What do nice friends want to do on someone’s birthday? Keep the children away from her for as long as possible so she has a lie-in.
So we decided to give C a birthday breakfast brunch. Made with a lot of help from all the children. Usual chaos in the kitchen, especially when the two year old dropped the last box of eggs, and we discovered that my oldest had fed the bacon to granny’s dog the day before. “but it looked so hungry, Mama” she said.
Luckily we had a load of Brioche Pasquier. Which are lovely and buttery, made with their traditional levain, and are all artificial colour and flavour free. Just the sort of things that are perfect for little tummies and mummy eats.
So the kiddoes whipped up a birthday brunch with brioche & hummus bites and brioche, cream fraiche and jam treats. And apart from the smoothies, all the children could carry their creations up to the spare bedroom, so C could have her birthday brunch in bed.
How long did she get as a lie-in?
Till 10 – the longest she’s had for 7 years, so serious success.
And did she get also get a whole packet of Brioche Pasquier pains au chocolats to eat in peace by herself, carefully sneaked up when children weren’t looking?
