Nothing but the Finest around here...

... the finest books to read ... and the finest, most nutritious meals for lunch. Yup, that's us.

Nothing but the Finest1

Nothing but the Finest2

For the record: The Littlest Dude is the one who picked this particular book from the library (and giggled uncontrollably while doing so), but the Oldest Dude is the one who quickly commandeered it and read it cover to cover. And the Cocoa Puffs? I have no excuses - I chose the path of least resistance. And don't think for a moment that the irony of eating round brown balls while getting the "Inside Scoop on Ancient Poop" passed me by! I am, after all, the mom of three boys.

Oh that is so funny. I don't think my kids would know what to do with themselves if I let them have Cocoa Puffs. Not that we don't eat junk. Just not breakfast junk. Except at the beach where we seem to have a diet of honey buns and coke.

But the poop. That is where all the information lies. My degrees are in Anthropology...and most "modern" archaelogy is in going through trash and latrines of old. Yuck.

Hilarious!

This summer while driving to swimming lessons -- on three separate occasions at the same point in the trip -- my two year old has informed us, "Doggies poop." My older three find it very entertaining.

Hysterical! Boys keep us on our toes don't they?

Mother of the Year!!!

Way to tie together your subject matter and your meal.

I didn't catch it at first. I just thought the box of cereal was additional reading material.

LOL!!!! I am laughing uncontrollably here because I am the mom of 2 boys and I totally get it. My boys would have happily made poop mounds with the cocoa puffs before eating them. All this after they recovered fromt he shock of getting cocoa puffs in the first place. :-)

Happy WW!

I have been such a slacker blogger. I promise to do better. I see I have alot of catching up to do on your blog.

oh wow, that is classic! I will make sure not to let my boy see that book at the library....

I love the bottom photo, it tells such a story and yet is so artistic. sigh, my good photos are always a matter of luck and surprise.

What is it about boys, dinosaurs, poop, and sugary cereal? I'm sending my boys right over. :)

Teri said...

My kids would love this book. Perfect dinner conversation piece. As usual.

Rhea said...

ROFL Cocoa Puffs and Dinosaur poop. What a combination! And, I agree, definitely only in a boy house. lol LOVE it. My kids would LOVE that book.

I ban bad cereal in my house, but my hubby seems to be hopelessly addicted to Captain Crunch Berries and Lucky Charms. I find them hiding in the bottom of our pantry. lol And, I have a secret desire for Fruit Loops...

Too funny, I can so relate here too!! and it's been a non-nutritious breakfast cereal week here as well.

Oh too funny! I suppose they have gone through all the Captain Underpants too? That was a fun phase around here.
