Ah, Father's Day breakfast.

For families that celebrate the day with a special breakfast, it usually starts with Mom whipping up some food favorites for the Dad of Honor and presenting them herself, with the child enthusiastically waving a card or a school project made of 50% construction paper and 50% paste.

When they're a little bigger, you might experience the heart-pounding, hair-graying thriller of watching your little one carry the tray of food to the dad-filled bed or couch.

Then, there's that milestone age. When the kids are finally old enough (or Mom is optimistic or foolish enough) to let them loose in the kitchen to make Dad breakfast ALL BY THEMSELVES.

Sometimes it's a bit before they become good cooks. Or form any concept of what tastes good. Or portion control. Or what's even edible.

Happy Father's Day, everyone!
