National Cereal Day *Memories*

Mama’s Losin’ It

Today is National Cereal Day...write about your favorite cereal when you were a child. How has it changed?

I loved that darn cereal! I can't remember the name of it. Growing up my dad had the same job for as long as I can remember and was highly under-paid! My mom had like three jobs but I remember her staying at home with us most of the time, esp when we got in middle and high school. My point is, we weren't rich! We didn't buy name brand cereal. I do remember when we would go shopping my dad would ocassionaly, like most men, splurg every now and then and he'd put a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is his and my sisters favorite cereal, but I hated it. It's wayyyy toooo sweet for breakfast. I liked the puffy rice cereal. I especially loved how it sweetened the milk just a tad.

It's still my favorite cereal. At sprouts a few months ago, at their last bogo sale, I bought like 6 bags of this stuff, came out to like $.14/bag or something! We're down to two bags, lol.

What is your favorite cereal? And do you know the name of my favorite cereal? Cus I don't! LOL

 Celebrate by letting your kids eat from a HUGE bow and the same bowl after they come home from school today! They will totally freak! lol


  1. My mom in law makes candied balls out of the puffed rice. My kids love it.

    1. Reminds me of "cow plops" my mom made - cookies made with chocolate covered Rice Krispies.

      I'm beginning to understand my obsession with the holiday poop gag gift candy! LOL

  2. Cinnamon Life was always my favorite :)

  3. I like eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch sometimes, but I agree, it is a bit too sweet for me.

  4. I <3 cereal. Dry Vector = favorite snack. Lucky Charms and Honey Combs = "treat"

  5. It's funny. When I was a kid, my mom always bought the budget friendly cereals, often sweet. My best friend's parents were well off and bought expensive, fancy (tasty) cereals. I liked sugar puffs, but she thought they were amazing. I thought the cereals at her house were incredible. LOL

  6. I love that rice cereal too! I eat cereal like twice a day most days. Love love love cereal. I dont' really have a favorite though. I eat healthy cereal for breakfast, but I have a "candy" cereal for a snack at night. Usually Lucky Charms or Fruity Pebbles.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
