Big G Cereal Heros


What’s more awesome than cereal? Cereal AND super heroes! Two of my boys favorite things.For a limited time, specially marked Big G cereal boxes will feature collectable DC Super Hero comic books starring members from the Justice League, from Batman to Wonder Woman to Green Lantern! (How cool is that right?!) Personally I give mad props to any cereal company that actually still puts toys in the cereal box instead of having to send 100 upcs off to get one. (Is General Mills the only brand that does that?)
We are huge cereal eaters here, for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes even dinner.(Yep I just admitted that to the entire world- I occasionally feed my kids cereal for breakfast!) I also put cereal in my kids lunch (dry of course)- oddly enough that some how makes me the cool mom! But my favorite thing to do with cereal is make cereal bars! Try this recipe, it literally works with ANY cereal. We tried it most recently with Lucky Charms (NOM).

So- I know you’re wondering how you can get your hands on some Big G cereal (besides going to the grocery)
Heres what you will win!

Getting Pinny With it.

My list of Pinterest “to do” list is getting MASSIVE, maybe if I post some of them on here I can get some motivation. Or at the very least motivate some others. Halloween is my favorite holiday, hands down. So here are some things Ive pinned that are incredibly amazing. And if you want, follow me on Pinterest. I spend way, way WAY too much time on there pinning my butt off.

{Isn’t this awesome? Since the kids aren’t allowed to have Halloween parties at school Im going to make this for my kids and their close friends to take in their lunches. Gotta love living in the “bible belt”}

{Its argyle, and its a pumpkin, need I say more? Though I think Id get white pumpkins instead.}

{I think these would be ADORABLE in the kiddos lunches, plus they’re easy. REALLY easy}

{I normally don’t buy juice packs, but really these would be pretty cute in their lunches}

The little things.

This morning, I was feeling extra sleepy/bad so I had slept in by about 15 minutes, thats when I hear Ethan at the top of my stairs {first thought is oh crap here we go}.

Then I hear him sing “It’s time to get up, It’s time to get up in the morning” {a song that we sing to him in the morning to wake him, the same song Johns parents sang to him to wake him up when he was little}. He proceeds to come down and jump right between me and John and snuggle.
Its moments like this that make me think its all worth it. Totally made my day.

Little hands.

Today walking away from the school- my oldest (he’s 10.5) grabbed my hand smiled and started to tell me about his day. Naturally I thought ok, he forgot were at school. That is until I hear someone yell “CHANDLER!!” it was his friend. Yep- he yanked his hand away to wave at his friend. I thought to myself, darn I knew it. Then he grabbed it again! Can you believe it. This must be some sign that Im still cool right?

My 8 year old is even hesitant to show affection at school anymore- so I assumed that my oldest would feel the same way. Guess not. So if it was a fluke- or if he meant to do it, it still made my day.
