A Mothers Ramblings: The Cereal Debate

The Cereal Debate

There is a debate in our house, that comes up everytime Flyfour and I have a breakfast of cereal together. You see, if we have cereal, Flyfour some gluten free and me some of whatever is needing finishing or if I'm lucky some cereal that I've actually chosen for myself then we will start debating over this matter. Flyfour is convinced I am wrong, I am convinced that he is wrong and I need you to help me settle this debate once and for all before Flyfour and I divorce over this matter!

Okay, so we won't really get divorced, but we might end up not talking for a few hours.

In an attempt to curry favour, I am not going to tell you who Flyfour and I are in the incidents below so you can't just say I'm right because you like me better than Flyfour!

Flyfour and PippaD looking all happy... because they are!


Person A is making cereal for breakfast. They pick cornflakes, pour out the right amount, add milk and add a sprinkle of sugar replacement over the top of the cornflakes. Person B is making cereal for breakfast, they have chosen a chocolate cereal, pour out the right amount of cereal, add milk and add a sprinkle of sugar replacement over the top of the chocolate cereal.

As you read the above scenario did you notice what was wrong? Could you see what drives me crazy?

Okay, let's throw another scenario into the mix.

Person A is making cereal for breakfast. They pick a chocolate based cereal, pour out the right amount, add milk. Person B is making cereal for breakfast, they pick a pre-sugared cereal, they pour out the right amount, add milk and add a sprinkle of sugar replacement over the top.

As you read the above scenario did you notice what was wrong? Could you see what drives me crazy?

Flyfour is crazy right? (Person B in both scenarios) You don't add sugar to cereals that already have sugar on them, do you!

Actually, do you? I'm not the crazy one right?

Let me know in the comments below if it's Flyfour or me that need to change our habits (also I already know it's not me).
