I’m going to the grocery store and making my list.
Confession: we eat cereal here. I know there are so many of you supermoms out there who make nice hot breakfasts (and lunches) for your deserving families. You are wonderful people. I do not do this. Yes, sometimes, I feel guilty about it. But generally, I just feel relieved that I have one less task to do. And for most of my children, I don’t even serve them, breakfast or lunch. And we don’t sit down as a family for those meals either. Self-serve, eat when you are hungry (within reasonable parameters).
Dinner, though, is usually a family affair. And yummy and hot.
So, back to grocery shopping. And list making. I usually buy cereal with coupons, because there are lots of cereal coupons every week in the paper. I have a coupon for Frosted Mini Wheats. But Katie doesn’t like FMW, the brand; she prefers the Malt-O-Meal equivalent. Whatever. With a coupon it’s probably the same price, or the MOM is cheaper anyway.
Peter, though, likes the flavored FMW. The coupon reminds me that he had asked for that kind, so I asked him to confirm his request.
“What flavor?” I wanted to know.
“All of them,” he said.
“Well, the coupon is only for two, so that’s all I’m going to get. What do you like best?”
He is my son. For the record, they don’t have that flavor (Peter was disappointed to learn this), but I’m wondering what Kellog’s thinks of that idea. I’m wondering if they can include caffeine…
