“If you wait long enough to make dinner, everyone will just eat cereal. It’s a science.”
If I could have, I would have chosen cereal based on the “surprise” inside. My parents were divorced, and I spent most of my breakfasts at my mom’s house. She was a fake health fanatic. She could eat whatever she wanted, but my sister and I had to limit our sugar intake. The breakfast of choice on a daily basis was Cheerios. My life was utterly depressing for many years until they thankfully came out with “Honey-nut Cheerios,” which added flavor to my bleh bowl of cereal. As others chowed down on the breakfast of champions, we filled our bowls with tasteless, colorless Cheerios.
I counted the days until Friday night, when I would sleep at my friend’s house. Not only did she have the best collection of Barbies, Barbie car, and TWO Ken dolls, but she had a three cereal selection for breakfast including: Cap’n Crunch, Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch and Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries.
Heaven on a breakfast table.
They also had whole milk and not gross skim milk, which completely improved the entire experience.
I have no idea how many bowls I ate, I only know it was at least two refills a cereal. They eventually stopped inviting me over their house, because I don’t think they could afford me. But, the damage was done, I had experienced sugar cereals.
I convinced my dad to buy Cap’n Crunch, most divorced dads find it extremely difficult to say no to a manipulative daughter, so at least once a week, I chowed down on some quality cereal.
Fast forward to Motherhood.
LIKE HELL I WOULD EVER BUY MY CHILDREN SUGAR CEREALS! I would NEVER buy anything other than Cheerios, HOWEVER, I slice bananas, fresh strawberries, add blueberries, and top it with organic whole milk. Cereal must be colorful, fun, and good for you.
As usual, my mom was right.
My children and I suffer from sensitive skin, so I have to really pay attention to the food we eat and the products we use. I have researched reliable companies, based on my own sensitive skin, that offer 100% organic and natural products, like Organyc® 100% pure, organic cotton feminine care products, which provide the same protection as the big brands with respect for your most sensitive skin.
