CRAAAAZY CEREAL WEEK!
Craaaazy Cereal Week (an arbitrarily determined week during the summer) is the only week during the year that I will breakdown and buy name brand Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs or WHATEVER. Without a coupon. Even if it's not on sale.
You can see why it's such a celebrated holiday in our house.
Yes, it's a lot of sugar for one week.
But the other 51 weeks a year no one expects, eats, or even ASKS for me to buy sugared cereal. Now really, how many mothers of 4 would you guess can regularly walk down a cereal aisle without batting an eye?
The rules of Craaazy Cereal Week are rigid, yet still leave room for compassion, conservation, and free-trade. (it's like I'm a republican or something!)
- Everyone chooses any 2 boxes they want on our Monday morning field trip to the grocery store.
- Each person has total control over their cereal as long as it stays in the kitchen. The 2 boxes may be eaten all in one day, or a little at a time over the 5 day period.
- No one may eat anyone else's cereal without a pre-agreed equal trade pact.
- On Saturday of Craaazy Cereal Week, all cereal is fair game, but the normal house cereal rules kick back in, and cereal may only be eaten before 9 am.
See? Easy, fun, and fair. AND only once a year.
I love it!
