Sugary Cereal Highs and Spoons

My husband is going to tell me I am both the biggest sucker and the biggest waster of money around, but when we were at Wal-Mart today and walked past the cereal display with light saber spoons, I grabbed two boxes since Chris says they are the coolest thing ever (or something along those lines).

My five year old was a bit disappointed when he realized I didn't say the boxes were cereal with Lifesavers, because he has Mommy's sweet tooth. Now the cereal that I never buy is in my house. I've trained these kids to like Muesli and I just bought them Corn Pops and Apple Jacks. I'm definitely insane. But we will have cool spoons and theoretically I could toss the cereal.

In fact, while my husband will probably still say the things above, he'll probably also be asking why I didn't buy one for him.


Oh, I have been meaning to get me some of them... and Squink is too young to know I had and ate Apple Jacks!

Toss the cereal? Nah! It's really useful for ant farm food.

OK, just returned from the store with a box of frosted corn flakes and a light up spoon! Uhm, make that two boxes and two light up spoons!

Just wait until you are eating breakfast in the dark... your husband will be so jealous ;-)

Peer pressure!! I almost feel guilty that Jay doesn't have one yet. Since Paul does the grocery shopping, I haven't had too many opportunities to indulge the lad, but it may happen at some point.

Welllll ... I took my youngster to the Walmart Saturday for food shopping, after having been warned by his mother about cutting back the sweets in his diet. Once I asked him what cereal he wanted, I knew I could not resist the force.

Even though he would not eat cereal until the following Monday, the box HAD to be opened as soon as we got home. He got to use his light saber spoon on chicken pot pie that night.

Even us oldsters can remember the thrill from opening up a box of cereal for some "treasure" back in our yutes. Who are we to deny that to our own heart-squeezers?

I just got two boxes myself. Hopefully the wee ones one cotton on.

I've discovered the ducks at Centennial Park like french fries. Surely they'd also enjoy junk cereal. ;>
