I meant well, but I made a careless comment about wanting a friend to attend a baby shower so she could help with games. (I thought she would rock out the games whereas I am about a 1 on a scale of 0-10 on game prep for festive occasions.)
This would have all been fine except she’s a friend currently without kids and it didn’t even cross my mind that a baby shower might be the last place on earth she’d want to find herself.
Here’s when you know you have a real friend.
They tell you you’re off your rocker and they don’t want to be near a baby shower at this point in their life.
Right there. Right then. Straight up.
She didn’t go a sulk in my thoughtless comment and get bitter, she just said what she felt. Right there. Right then. Straight up.
Hope you have a friend as real and honest as this. They’re hard to find and very worth keeping. xoxo

What was your favorite cereal as a kid?
When was the last time you had that cereal?
Kids tend to love brightly colored and sweetly flavored cereal. As we get older the health focus sets in (hopefully) and we scale back on the cocoa puffs and lucky charms. That’s a good thing.
I had my first bite of Fruity Pebbles yesterday.
It brought back all the joy and happiness of being a kid and eating my favorite kid cereal. (I was a huge Trix fan. And when I say “fan,” my Mama would want me to mention that our favorite cereal consumption was because we got our “special” cereal as a Christmas present and birthday present.) I forgot how happy a spoon full of sugar is.
My best suggestion for you this day is to buy what was your favorite cereal as a kid and have a bowl. Better yet, have your spouse or kids join you for a bowl and relish the childlike enjoyment of a colorful and ridiculously sweet bowl of cereal.
You will be so happy it’ll surprise you.
