day 203: breakfast

Well, if you know me, not breakfast in this house. And yes, I went and bought a little single-serving container of Fruit Loops just for this shot. And yes...I did in fact give myself a self-righteous pat on the back when my oldest son spotted the little sugary preservative-laden wheels of death and said, "Woa! Are those some type of fruity Cheerios?" (He didn't even know the name).

And before you leave my blog thinking I'm some type of snooty super-mom, I will let you know that I am a scatterbrained, disorganized mess half the time. But I am a bit of a nutrition fanatic.

And yes, I did let them eat the Fruit Loops. Just this once. :-)

Edit: For the record, child #3 ate three death disks and flung the rest to the floor, shaking her little blond curls and saying "No mo'! No mo'!" Child #2 didn't want anything to do with the cereal, and child #1 ate every last one, even the Fruit Loop dust.

Edit #2: I just want to say a special thank you to One Country Girl for choosing me as last week's Macro Friday winner! Thank you for making my day! :-)

Head on over to Macro Friday to see some more cool shots!

I love this shot so much I want to replicate it...but I can't now that you did it, but I can be inspired. Who would have thought it! You're my favorite.

I am with Ashley; I want to duplicate this shot, but I guess I will do it with Cheerios and that's going to not be so colorful.
Great pic!!

This is really cute. Very creative.

Jodee Leader said...

I love, love, love this picture! Unfortunately, my kids probably eat even worse cereal -- they love Reeses (a/k/a chocolate balls)!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Siobhan said...

This is a great shot...love the colors and the simplicity of it

Good for you!! Teaching your children all about healthy choices...we grew up the same and I am so thank-ful for the life lesson...

Not saying we didn't get the odd indulgences once in a while but for the most part we ate healthy all the time!!

angela said...

I love that picture. So creative. And just to make you feel better I recently bought my kids fruit loops too....they actually have fibre in them (at least that is what I tell myself to feel better about the fact that I bought them).

Kristi said...

I just stumbled across your blog and your photos are amazing!

I also have had one of those proud Mommy moments when my kids could not identify (sugar) cereal. {So I completely admire that in others of course! :P}

Adeena said...

Wow! That is totally awesome! :D

My kids don't eat that either... but, we're gluten-free. ;)
