I was on the cereal aisle when my eyes caught sight of the fun pack cereals. You know the ones...6 or 8 little boxes of all the best sugary cereals shrink wrapped together. And in a moment of nostalgia and apparent lack of judgment I grabbed it and tossed it in the cart.
What a fun and rare surprise for the girls, I thought.
They don't yet know the delights of these little boxes of pure sugar disguised as breakfast food. That Corn Pops used to be called Sugar Pops in gramma's day. That Cocoa Krispies will leave you with a delightful bowl of chocolate milk to drink. That Frosted Flakes are best eaten quickly before they turn soggy...that goes for Honey Smacks as well. Fruit Loops aren't as healthy as they sound...and although they leave your milk pink, it doesn't taste like Strawberry Quik.
Oh the wonders to discover.
Even in their clueless state, they knew mommy's surprise was something special. The packaging of these little gems is a little more enticing than Target brand cheerios I guess.
A fight ensued, and only a good mommy blogger would grab her cell phone for a picture instead of breaking up the fight.
Lily stands confident.
A clear winner.
Though winner and loser shared the spoils.
It was the most quiet breakfast in months. I'm not sure they breathed between bites and slurps. ..the slurping of the milk straight from the bowl. (Jade did this too when she ate her second box with milk.)
I have no clue from where or from whom that skill was learned. But, mmm...that chocolate milk was good.
