I like cold cereal.
As a young/new mom I was very careful to avoid giving my children any of the sugary cereals. Cheerios & Kix -- that was it. I was a hypocrite mom -- because I ate the "bad" sugar cereals while depriving my children of them. I grew up with the likes of Lucky Charms, Captain Crunch, Frosted Flakes, Sugar Pops, Sugar Smacks, etc. So, while my children ate their healthy cereals, I'd pour myself a secret bowl of something full of sugar! And so it began...the "secret eating." Eventually the kids found me out -- and I could no longer deprive them of the sugary delights. It soon became birthday tradition in our home that the "birthday child" got to choose WHATEVER cereal he/she wanted for their birthday, AND they could eat the entire box themselves, if they chose. (unless I had a "secret bowl")
Now, I'm a changed woman. I no longer deprive any child the taste bud party provided by sugary cereals. In fact, I've also been known to let young children have ice cream with their cereal for breakfast when they stay with me! Hey, dont' judge. It's a dairy product.
Here's a blast from the '70's past....
Just one more. Because the memories are so, well....SWEET !
Confession: I like to eat cold cereal for lunch and dinner. And a snack.
What's your favorite cereal?
