But when you think about it, flipping pancakes, trying to not break yolks and keeping the toast that perfect shade of gold are some of the trickiest kitchen tasks out there. Take a hint from these hapless chefs, and do whatever you can to avoid serving up Mom a dud this Mother's Day. Did someone say "IHOP"?
My favorite part is when the little one just starts eating the yogurt.
Pro tip: The first pancake is always a hot mess. Don't give it to Mom!
I think Goldilocks would have definitely shunned this burnt bowl of porridge.
Dunking your doughnuts? Sure. Toast? Yeah! Fried egg? Umm... no.
No one said breakfast in bed wasn't going to get messy. Syrup and bed linens just don't mix.
Made my mom breakfast in bed and she's not even at home #fail lol— Christian Jimenez (@cpjxv) January 3, 2013
On the upside, now you can just get into your bed and eat the breakfast. Thanks for not being here, Mom!
In his defense, mastering the perfect fried egg can be pretty hard!
Overnight oats seem like a dream, but unless you sleepwalk to check on your slow cooker during the night, it's kind of a gamble.
Nothing says "Happy Mother's Day!" like an algal explosion in the kitchen. I bet Pop-Tarts are sounding pretty good to Mom right about now.
If Mom could pretend to like your totally mediocre finger paintings, I'm sure she'll pretend to love this crispy brown mess too.
"I'm not mad," Mom will say when she sees her waffles. "Just disappointed."
If your mom read Dr. Seuss to you as a kid, maybe she won't mind that these waffles are green and smell like One Fish Two Fish...
Just like an eldest child who isn't quite living up to their potential, so does this toast disappoint.
They might look like dead seals, but they'll be flopping around in Mom's tummy just like live ones.
Sometimes you put all your eggs into one basket. And the basket gets run over by a Monster truck.
Part raw, part burnt beyond recognition, this bacon represents the tumultuous relationship between mother and child during the teen years.
With this much pepper, it doesn't take a lot of effort to be a hot mama.
"Hey Mom, I made you breakfast! On an unrelated note, you might want to clean the kitchen before my friends come over tonight."
Mom always did say you need to pay more attention to the details. Tightening the cap on the saltshaker would be a good place to start.
Combining Mom's two favorite breakfasts seemed like a good idea at the time...
