Breakfast of Champions

It takes me a long time to put myself together in the mornings, so it falls on Chip to feed and dress the kids. I rely on his input when it comes to buying breakfast foods each week, but we long-ago agreed on a hard and fast rule about cereal- none of those all-sugar affairs, a la Fruit Loops or Lucky Charms. Without those in the mix, it should come as no surprise that the list of acceptable foods is pretty small. (I'm sure you're imagining chicken and biscuits, but so far no processed nuggets at breakfast.) Mainly a lot of cereal bars and toast, with the occasional yogurt smoothie providing the illusion of nutrition.

Chip recently complained that breakfast was getting boring and needed to be spiced up a bit. After a couple of weeks of trial and error, two new foods have been added to the rotation- cinnamon rolls and Pillsbury Toaster Strudel. Two foods that are served with icing on top. My failure as my family's provider of nutrition is almost complete. Maybe today when I'm at the store I should just pick up some Cap'n Crunch and get it over with.

You shouldn't blame yourself, it sounds more like Chip's failure as a provider. You were in the bathroom.

I'm not a big cereal person, but I love me some cocoa crispies. You got a problem with those?

For years, all I would eat for breakfast was Count Chocula or peanut butter Cap'n Crunch. I'm worried my addiction might be genetic, so I'm trying to protect the children from their inevitable future as long as I can.

That's the same reason I'm hiding the heroin, come to think of it.
