Okay, not really but wouldn't you know it, Mom Bloggers Club emailed me and asked me if I would be willing to review a box of General Mills Cereal. Will I review a box of cereal? Hello! See the sign above!
So I anxiously awaited my box of cereal, hanging out at the mail box at the street corner with a hungry look in my eyes, and sure enough, it showed up a few days later-- via FedEx. Obviously, I should have been stalking my doorstep instead.
I admit, I was slightly worried what kind of cereal we would get. What if it was some high fiber/roughage cereal? My kids would never eat that. Well, on second thought, maybe Emma would, I caught her chewing on a rock outside this afternoon. But much to my relief, it was a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. New and improved Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Calcium and Vitamin D added.
My kids hate milk, so I am always looking for other sources of calcium other then ice cream, yogurt, and cheese. Finally, something not so messy. And recently the American Academy of Pediatrics recently doubled the vitamin D recommendation for children. While my children like their gummy vitamins, they like Cinnamon Toast Crunch much better, and they can eat more than two.
Whew, this job would be a piece of cake. With my rabid children, all I had to do was open the box, throw cereal up into the air and let them having a Parana feeding frenzy on the kitchen floor. However, we are much too civilized for that AND its not as fun to film. Even my dogs could video kids fighting over food. Wait, the dogs would be in the middle of it. Oh well, you get the point.
So I decided to make my very own commercial. And after creating this masterpiece, I see a definite future career in advertising here. Those high paid ad guys are quaking in their boots right now, as well they should. So without further ado, the Swank family presents:
The Breakfast Fairy
Note: You know in The Wizard of Oz when they say "Ignore the man behind the curtain?" In this case, ignore the screaming, fighting children. Child actors can be so temperamental.
Don't be jealous of my obvious cinematography skills. Really.
Note #2: I was not paid to review this cereal. I only received a box of cereal. You know the saying: Give a woman money and she might buy a pair of shoes. Give her a box of cereal and she gets out of making pancakes. Never heard that one? Hmm... well, just remember, you heard it here first.
