The Confessional: I feed my kids sugar cereal, so….

by | Aug 3, 2012 | Parenting/Family | 2 comments

*I am busy allowing myself to get FAR too tired at the BlogHer Conference in NYC (NEW YOUR CITTTTTAY!!!). So instead of something new I am bringing this little confession back from the dead (originally posted about a year ago, and I am still feeding my kids sugar cereal. Judge away. Or join me in camaraderie!) Speaking of dead/undead, my main goal at BlogHer this year is to NOT come home feeling like the Undead for 3 days, as I have since 2008. But I am not known to be one who sets reasonable goals so whatever. A girl’s gotta have a dream… DREAM BIG OR GO HOME!*

I confess. See this box:

Lucky Charms make you tall?

It’s a box-o Lucky Charms.

I have a picture of it here in this post because I have this box in my home.

Folks. Friends… Cast ye judgment aside lest ye cast yon first stone….

This is not the first time I have brought sugar cereal into my home.

Alas and whathaveyou.

Go ahead. Gasp. Get it out.


Moving forward…

My 9 y.o. saw that picture on the box. She furrowed her brows, tilted her head and asked, “Mom. Lucky Charms makes you tall???”

My answer was… as always… filled with maternal wisdom, “Uh. Yeah. No.”

Lucy, never to be left out of a conversation… never to be one to let a mystery remain gave her two cents, “Maybe they make you lucky?”







“Or maybe they make you CHARMING!”

Yes. Let’s go with that.

Did I ever tell you about the time I yelled at my son… “You have to eat ALLLL your Cocoa Puffs or NO donut.” Or was it “Eat all your donut or NO Cocoa Puffs.”?

True story. The bonus for you is, no matter how low you hit in your own motherhood journey… I’ll be there to break your fall.
