Simplifying Our Morning Routine

Life with kids can be crazy hectic.

Between school, sports, church, family activities, birthday parties and the like, I feel like we are perpetually running late.

It's funny because I've always been the girl that's on time or even early, to everything. When my boys were little bitty, you could count on me to be the very first one at playgroup. If we had a doctor's appointment, I was there right on time. Meeting a friend for lunch? No problem, I'll be there early to get a good table.

But as the kids get older, it actually seems harder to get going.

Someone put on two different shoes.

This one forgot his backpack.

That one forgot his lunch.

They both forgot to use the bathroom before they headed out to the car.

One of the things we consistently struggle with is the battle over breakfast. I don't know about your kids, but if Chris or I don't sit there and police our boys, then they'll choose to goof off instead of eat in the mornings. And you might think that this battle gets easier during the summer, but that is not the case!

Why? Because all of the fun things that summer entails, like visits to the park with friends, heading off to see the grandparents, going to the lake to fish, packing up for a weekend getaway.

The great news is that I've found something new that will make my... I mean, our lives easier.

If you're like my family, we already love Kellogg's cereal. Brayden loves Fruit Loops, Brody's favorite is Frosted Flakes, I enjoy Raisin Bran Crunch and Chris likes Frosted Mini Wheats.

And now, instead of taking several precious minutes to locate four types of cereal, and get everyone fed, we can all just grab a Cereal In A Cup, new from Kellogg's. It will go wherever our busy family goes, and my kids can grab it without any help from us (score!). Best of all, it's available where I already shop - at Walmart!

If you need a quick and easy snack or breakfast, then grab your favorite Cereal In A Cup to go!
