    I do believe Momofuku Milk Bar in NYC has something called “cereal milk.” Maybe they’ll ship it to you? ;-)

    @lisdom BRILLIANT.

  • Regency Romantic

    I think I would pay money for the audio version of “Okay, Cheerios”….sweet bebe voice!

  • Fifi Coon

    Thanks for the afternoon laugh!! Love the picture of Chuck with the ornaments.

    It works with teenagers too:

    me: be home at 8:30

    them: how about 9?

    me: how about 8?

    them: see you at 8:30

    me: EXACTLY!

    With unruly, fussy teens tormenting me while everything shopping at SuperTarget, I liked to use, “Get along or walk home.” Also effective at home, “Get along or get out.”

    It’s like you are in my house. 21mo threw the biggest hissy fit this morning complete with inconsolable panting all because she couldn’t dip her spoon in her bowl and come up without any Cheerios. The Cheerios she purposefully asked for in a bout of reasonable communication.

  • Zedda

    Thanks for putting a huge smile on my face! It gives me hope!

    Heather – This is one of the most brilliant moments of Bl+ting (Blog + Writing = so much more than blogging.) Thank you for inspiring me… once again.
    I hope you are working on a new book. xTami

    “I’m tired, still suffering from a lingering bout of insomnia that turns reasonable decisions into locked vaults. And the keys are upstairs somewhere in a pair of pants I can’t find because they’re lying at the bottom of a pile of reality I’m not yet ready to face.”


  • Skinnysara

    High five Marlo for me, because I LOVE Cheerios flavored milk.

    It’s all oatey and malty and I could have it for breakfast every day for the rest of my life.

    Nope. No food issues here.

    I wish I could post my picture of my Old-Lady Cruiser Bike I rode to work Tuesday 12/13 in response to your foggy Salt Lake City picture as posted in “Thurs AM” It was 18 degrees and foggy here in Ft Collins CO. Awesome! I only like Cheerios sneaked from toddlers. NO MILK!

  • Tanzie F. Nielsen

    Great post!

  • dianemaggipintovoiceover

    your thursday a.m. photo of yesterday does a great job of capturing
    what the deny-ers call “haze.” oh my blech.

  • Absent Minded Housewife

    Obligatory Bendover NV mention here. We eat our Cheerios with Boones Farm poured on top.

  • ecileh

    “Smells like beige” totally belongs in your next header.

    You can make things happen, Wait for things to happen, or wonder what the heck just happened.

    Most of us live in that third reality.

  • serene275

    You are brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you for the daily dose of entertainment and laughter.

  • filmlady11

    Hi Heather, I’m with Marlo :-)

    And after all the great stuff you’ve brought into my life over the last couple of years, I also wanted to share my blog with you:

    Happy Mormon-style Holidays! ;-)

  • mommica

    Oh please please please let my second daughter be this different from my first! The older is the most brilliant, funniest kid I’ve ever met and I wouldn’t change a thing about her. But if I have to go through another three years like the last three years? I’m pretty sure I won’t come out of it without some serious institutionalization.

  • francabollo

    Great, great post. Too many quotable lines/paragraphs to cut and paste here.

    But please tell me the bauble hanger wasn’t poking Chuck’s tender snout.

  • francabollo

    @lisdom and dooce

    There’s an ice cream shop here in San Francisco that makes a flavor called Secret Breakfast. Made with cornflakes-infused milk and bourbon. I think Heather would enjoy it as much as Marlo.

  • francabollo

    @dianemaggipinto. Is your sister Donata?
