Céréale aux Anchois!

Ah, the lengths we go to. The kids go nuts whenever David buys chocolate Cruesli (his preferred cereal) and it creates so many dramas whether they do eat it (massive sugar highs for both) or don't (massive tantrums by the littlest Giorgi). So I pretty much stopped buying it and left David to sort out his own breakfast.

Now, as he is not a porridge aficionado (like the rest of us are so long as there is nothing better in the kitchen), it didn't take him long to buy his own packet and try to disguise it. Of course, given that these kids will eat just about anything, he had to be rather imaginative about what sort of cereal it was. I like his package design - especially the little "attention!" sign with the anchovies on the side of the pack. And its "new" too! And, what's more, it worked. It wasn't until he'd finished the whole packet and put the box in the recycling that they even noticed it.

I'd like to know what they had to say when they realized that Daddy had eaten ALL the chocolate cereal! Naughty Daddy!

Love it!

When Stephie's kids are ill and they want more medicine she removes from the fridge a little bottle. It has a sticker with the word 'placebo' written on it. It is a compound of such things as lemon juice and vanilla essence and plain old water. Works a treat!
