A girl has to fake a few things to get through life; and I have been faking my breakfast habits for a long time now. Even my husband is completely blind to my inner cereal desires. The truth is, although I can put on a pretty face and choke down a bowl of granola with yogurt on top, what I really prefer is a larger than life helping of marshmallow cereal. Preferably Lucky Charms, Marshmallow Mattees...really anything that turns the milk a funky shade of greenish pink. I subconsciously eat the oats first and save the goods for last. With each heaping spoonful of only mallows, I am already dreaming of my next bowl.
While shopping the co-op yesterday, I suddenly stumbled into my cereal Nirvana. To my surprise, some respectable adult like myself developed an all-natural marshmallow cereal?! Was it that hard to just swallow your pride Mr. Organic Companies and create the cereal that we all secretly desire? $3.79 was all this large box cost. In the last 24 hours, 2.5 of my meals have consisted of "Mallow-Oats". It is seriously yummy!
Another confession to faking it comes down to fashion. When the 80's style started to make a comeback, I began dreaming of neon sunglasses, checkers and big hair. Maintaining my "JCrew" style, I have compromised with myself and last week I bought a neon yellow sports bra. It is satisfying on 2 levels: the teens won't be able to mock me for being the mom who thinks she's a kid again, yet on the inside I know that I've still "got it".
This week, you all have my permission to fake or not to fake. It isn't easy to turn a fake into reality, but sometimes you can meet it half way.
