The Good Ole Days


Remember those good old days when you were a kid, and you sat at the table and ate your favorite cereal, while reading the side of the box? I say, relive those days! It doesn't matter how old you are, you can recapture those times. Who cares who might see you. Just do it. Seriously!
My kids are restricted on the sugar cereals on school days. They're just wild enough as it is. But during summer, or vacations, these restrictions are lifted. The other day, I came downstairs, and all three of them were sitting there in front of a cereal box, reading it, and doing the puzzles and activities.
So, if you can't beat 'em, I guess you should join 'em! I sat with them. I poured myself a good old bowl of Apple Jacks and ate it with them. As soon as I sat down, they were showing me things on the side of their cereal box. I helped Collin make it through a maze of syrup to make it to the bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Theron said, look mommy, this one is good for you...it doesn't have any fat, but it has 5 grams of fiber. "That's good for you!" he said. Yea, that's good for you, Theron!
My favorite is Lucky Charms. I love it. I could live on it. In fact, years ago when I had my appendix out, and I was trying to get my appetite back, I ate Lucky Charms. After a week or so, that did the trick! Wait a second...that was 10 years ago! Wow. Time flies.
I think Lucky Charms is quite nearly a perfect food. If only it was all marshmallows, now that would be truly magically delicious! Collin says, "Lucky Charms make you lucky, mommy!" Well, I guess it's true, because I have those three!
What's your favorite?

How about a good hearty bowl of oatmeal? Actually, I like cream of wheat better, but if it's sugar cereals, I have to go with Apple Jacks. Lately though, I've been eating all the leftover Neopets cereal they didn't eat. I don't understand, its just like Trix.

(If you don't have a Neopet yet, I'll be happy to refer ya.) ;)

I wonder where all the pictures from the Renaissance Festival this weekend went. Hmmmmm...maybe that's tomorrow.

Ypu went to the Renaissance Festival??? How fun!! i wanna see those pics! I'm with D!!

Very cute though. I like trix and lucky charms. But you know me, if it has sugar, I'll eat it!!

I want pictures from the Festival, too!! I like oatmeal, or cream of wheat, too, but I add brown sugar and cinnamon, with a splash of vanilla. For sugar cereals, I choose cocoa krispies. I like the chocolate milk!!

we were at scott's cousins house last weekend and he had the chocolate lucky charms- so i did the same thing "i'll relieve my childhood and have junk cereal"- well that was not worth it- not so good- stick to the normal lucky charms!

I love Fruity Pebbles! I can eat them when I can eat nothing else. Although Lucky charms is in close 2nd. Yummy I could use a bowl right now! See ya!

Your boys are so sweet! You are a lcuky girl to have those little men in your life!

My favorite would have to be Berry flavored Kix, although Lucky Charms is a close second (and I never knew they made chocolate flavored Lucky Charms!). I am a big fan of all kinds of breakfast foos and can eat it any time of day.

Bring on the Renaissnace Fest pics!!!

I can spell - really, I can. Sorry.

Hmmm...tough to say. When I read the words "Apple Jacks", my mouth watered. But I think as far as favorite, I would have to go with...Fruity Pebbles.
