One Green Clover Marshmallow Short of a Lucky Charms Box

Don't want to alarm anyone, but today IS the beginning of Craaaaaazy Cereal Week.

We arrived home from our morning field trip to the cereal aisle, and naturally tore right into the boxes, with our bowls and spoons clanging happily.

Lizzie: "Remember Mimi, these two are mine, and you can't eat them without asking me."
Mimi: "Unless I sneak down here in the middle of the night."
Lizzie: "Unless I put them in my room."
Mimi: "Unless I use my secret key."
Lizzie: "Unless I sleep with them gently cradled in my arms."
Mimi:  ".. I accept your challenge."

At which point I remembered that the "Craaaaazy" in Craaaaazy Cereal Week does not necessarily refer to the cereal.

I'm kind of wishing I was part of your family right now. Then I'd have an excuse for sleeping with cereal cradled in my arms:)

i would just like a list of the 'rules.' sounds fun, and i think we're crazy enough to participate...especially since we don't do cereal around here cept for birthdays. :)

You're going to have a great week!

By the way - your comment form is asking me to enter a user name and password for my google account. I don't know if you meant it to be that way or not, but I'm not even sure what user name it wants from me! Usually I come here and it's already got my google info plugged in. Anyway - thought you might want to know. :)

I'm a lover of all the boring cereals. Would I win for taking all the rejects?

i'm curious to know how this played out.

I'm predicting lizzie went ahead and ate both boxes that day to save herself the sleepless nights of defending them.

However, if she did attempt to keep them safe for a few nights, and I was coaching mimi, i would tell her to set an alarm for every 2 hours and go make noises outside lizzie's door. eventually she would pass out from sleep deprivation, and mimi would be free to pillage :-)

or they are both currently deceased

which one? :-)

Wowl. I read that in the "Two wild and crazy guys" voice.

Sorry?

Jennifer said...

So funny...and so true. You'd think that everyone having their own boxes would prevent the fighting. lol
