If we resisted we sat at the table until we ate it.
I am one of those people that can not eat early in the morning and hate Oatmeal - even now. Though I try to eat it as I need a healthy diet.
My mother always cooked eggs over easy and that was not something I could eat.
My mother was a control freak ^ not just with food.
We didn't live with our grandparents after I turned 8. We moved to MI. But my mother's mother fed me pancakes and we had a pancake eating contest.
My dad's mother was a stickler for propriety. You ate what was put in front of you. Luckily I never had breakfast there. Lunch and dinners I had no problem eating.
Breakfasts were often a very difficult experience.
I thought it weird that my mother was more like my Dad's mother then her mother. Especially since she didn't like Dad's mother. She also told me I looked just like Dads mother. That was why she didn't like me.
Weird family. Vibes.
Now I do eat breakfasts early. But I get to cook what I like. Oatmeal is not one I eat. lol
