we have two sections to this instructable, one from the "out-of-the-house child" and one from the "in-the-house child"
Step 1: The Card (in-home or Out-of-home Children)
everyone gets cards for special occasions, but how many of those cards are hand-made?
moms love to get gifts and relaxation but it will melt their heart when you take the time to make a card for them yourself instead of just going and buying one.
Step 2: Supplies
pen or pencil
Step 3: The Making
now you can decorate the inside and outside as you want, write something she will keep forever.
now fold it up and put it in the envelope and label it Mom (obviously) make it as simple or fancy as you think appropriate!
and the first step is completed!
Step 4: The Breakfast in Bed (child-at-home)

The following ingredients are needed to make this "instructa-recipe":
2/3 cup of whole milk
4 large eggs
2 Tablespoons of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Using a shallow bowl whisk them together (or blend together with a fork).
The egg mixture should look a little bit like this before you start dipping the bread (picture 5)
dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture just before you add the bread to the fry pan, or if you don't want to get your hands dirty, you can ladle it on. (pic. 6)
both sides should be nicely covered, the more sauce the fluffier it will be
Melt 1/2 Tablespoons of butter in a pan over medium heat. Add one or two slices of marinaded bread to the pan, don't let them touch or they may stick together.
pan fry the bread until it is golden brown and then flip it Let the other side cook until golden brown as well (pic. 7)
