Cereal Face



My last post I mentioned my vanity and the fact that I am unable to do many of the things that I would like to do to enhance appearance.  I have recently found an all natural product that will have to work until I am able to begin my regime again.  It’s the cereal mask. 
I began spoon feeding my daughter cereal when she was 3 months old.  Some people say you shouldn’t give solids to a baby until they are around 5months old.  I went against this new school of thought and opted for the “old school” way of doing things.   At family gathering a few of the older ladies asked me if my daughter was on cereal yet.  I said no and that I was told that I should wait to give it to her, they informed me that they gave their babies cereal very early and that I should too.  The real incentive for me to give it to her was when they said it may help her sleep all night.  SLEEP?!  Oh I was all over anything that could possibly get her to sleep all night.  (Let me just say this is a myth and did not work.)  However, I did try it and she LOVED it!  She did so well with it I kept her on it and to this day she looks forward to cereal time. 
Recently she has learned how to spit her cereal in my face.  Of course this is not intentional but she does think it is funny.  Whether she spits it when she is laughing, crying or during a sneeze, a few times a week I have cereal on my face.  I have decided to make the most of it and leave the cereal on my face hoping there is some benefit to it.  After all it is organic so it has to be good…..right?
