Lucky Charms, take two
"Mom, is this a head-horse?" Madeline asks, holding up a Lucky Charms marshmallow.
"A what?" I ask.
"A head-horse!" she exclaims. I go over to see what she is talking about.
"Oh, you mean a horseshoe," I reply, quite amused.
"Oh, horseshoe," she repeats.
"Yes, I think that is what it is," I say, going back to the dishes.
A few minutes later Madeline asks, "Is this a head-horse, too?"
"Horseshoe, Madeline. Horseshoe," I reply.
"Right, horseshoe," she repeats.
Lily chimes in, holding up what is very obviously a pink heart. "What's this?" she asks.
"That's a heart, Lily," I answer.
Madeline holds up a new one and says, "And this must be an octopus."
Right. Pink hearts, purple horseshoes, blue moons....and multi-colored Octopuses. Somehow, I doubt General Mills will give them the magically delicious seal anytime soon.
