My Little Fruit Loops

This morning my kids were all jazzed to open a new box of Fruit Loops from the cereal cupboard.

Rugby told me, "Em just wants to open it because he wants to know what we won."

I told them to go ahead and open it.

Emerson's face was priceless when he realized that we hadn't won anything.

He said, "We could have won an ipad or a bike.  They even have video games."

He was so defeated.  He said, "I knew we didn't win because the box was really small."

Wait, what?!?

He explained that if we would have won the box would have been bigger to fit the prize inside.  Duh.

Rugby helped him out by adding, "Next time look for the box that has the bike sticking out of the top-- OK Mom?"

Ummm... not OK.  Something is seriously wrong with my boys if they think I could just pick the ipad shaped box to win it.  I tried to explain that if you win there is a code inside and you redeem it online.  They weren't sure my logic panned out.  They figured the box with the bike hanging out of the top made way more sense.

"Fine, next time I promise to pick the bike shaped box.  Happy now..."

They were.

Ahhh, the mystic joys of being a kid.  You gotta love a good box of magic for breakfast.

They just don't do cereal prizes like they used to. When I was growing up every box of cereal used to have prizes in them. Now they are just codes and "sorry you're not a winner". How fun is that???? I want a bike shaped box or an ipad shaped box. Tell me if you see one.

Grandma can look for a bike shaped ceral box too. But don't hold your breath because I may not find one. Maybe I could buy an ipad and put it inside the ceral box for them next time I come up.

I've actually sent the ones with the bikes sticking out to them. You must not be looking hard enough :)
