Charging His Mornings With Cheerios Protein… and Kisses

I'm usually stuffing a breakfast bar or a peeled orange in his hand as he kisses me good bye, knowing that he won't eat a morsel until lunch time. I also know how taxing it is to start the day so frantically and have been on a mission to have Daddy D join us for breakfast.
