Too Much TV

Its not uncommon knowledge that my kids watch way too much TV. It really scares my when they quote commercials etc. Its also not uncommon knowledge that marshmallows are baby crack to Piper Ann.

I decided a few months ago that we were no longer buying cereal with marshmallows in it. I’m trying to eliminate the “don’t just pick the marshmallows out and beg for more cereal” fight.

Ricardo went to Sam’s to pick up a few things and come home with the mega cereal triple pack. One of the cereals of course is Lucky Charms (they used to call it “yucky charms” before they could say,”L” the right way. You can say that again. I hate the way it feels against your teeth when you bite into those chalky marshmallows.) .

So, Piper Ann has been begging me all week to open that box of cereal. “Mommy, can I have Marshmallow Power?” I told her we needed to finish the box we had open before we could open it, and then wondered where the heck she got “Marshmallow power” from.Yesterday, she ate 3 bowls of cereal to try and finish it. After she finished each one, she would ask, “can I have marshmallow power now? Finally I said, “Piper Ann, you have to eat 3 more bowls of Cheerios, before you can have ‘Marshmallow Power.'” She gave up.

I’m guessing she needs “marshmallow power” to fuel her tantrums, although they are getting a lot better. Oliver has just taken over. Welcome to the terrible two’s.

    This is exactly why I stopped giving my kids trail mix – they just pick the M&M’s out and leave the raisins and peanuts for me. So unfair.

    The only time Clare gets marshmallow cereal is at the grandparents – so it’s an ultra special treat.
