    I’ve been know to give my children a favorite box of cereal as a birthday gift. It’s usually the overpriced kinds that I typically wouldn’t buy for general family consumption.

    I can’t get wordpress to accept my sign-in, but anyway … you’d better buy that child her own box of cereal or you’ll be getting one in the mail.
