This morning, I poured a bowl of Lucky Charms and this is what I got. Unlucky? I don't think so. I grilled the girls with accusation. Have you picked all the marshmallows out? Ellie totally denied it. Although she did say she looks in the box and assesses which side would score her the most marshmallows before she pours. Pretty smart. Maya said "no" but I saw something in her eyes. Then she confessed, "but only on the last bowl" because she didn't get any either.
All this to say, why did I even start my day with a bowl of sugary cereal? Yesterday I came home from work and crashed from a long busy week. I just couldn't bear the thought of the school fun fair or even a martini with the moms after. I was completely wiped out and needed down time. So I stayed home, laid on the couch, watched a movie, and then some lecture on healthy eating that supplements the PBS subscription drive. Yes, yes. I know this. I shouldn't be eating sugar, or wheat or dairy. So is this bowl unlucky? No. It just wasn't meant to be.
