Buzz likes to have a bowl of cereal in the morning. It’s the only breakfast item he’ll eat with any amount of gusto. Inevitably, I feed it to him or else a milky mess gets sloshed everywhere. Sometimes though, it takes more energy than I have that early on to stuff his maw full of Fruit Loops. He doesn’t care about my feelings, though, he just wants cereal.

She was squealing as I chased and then pried the rings of glee from her death grip. All the while, multi-color crumbs were sticking underfoot. It was way more hassle than a regular bowl of milk-drenched cereal would ever be.
