See, we're all *together* during the breakfast ordering and driving, etc. Not mom putting stuff in the oven right at the exact moment 2yo decides to stand up for himself and decks 4yo for first dibs on riding his new stuffed tiger which will be forever forgotten and not saved for eternity on a lovely family video that could be re-lived over and over and bring an old decrepid couple the only happiness they have in the world cuz they're only waiting to die at this point, but NO! Mom had to put in the ultra-convenient make-ahead dish. Yeah, forget it.
