Growing up, I swore up and down that one day my kids would be able to eat whatever cereal they wanted.
They'd have their pick of the cereal aisle! Bring on the Golden Grahams, Trix, and Cookie Crisp!
It seemed wrong that while my friends could eat whatever they wanted in the morning, I was limited to Cheerios, Kix, Chex, Grape Nuts, Wheeties, etc.
It seemed CRAZY that my mom allowed my sister and I to pick out sugary cereal once a year- for our birthday.
It was a big deal. My sister and I would spend weeks, dreamily planning which cereal we would pick with sugary dreams running through our heads.
