Sharing is Caring, Give a Box of Cheerios

This post is sponsored by Cheerios.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Growing up, having a box of cereal in the cabinet was a must.  My mom worked a lot so my go to meal was always cereal.  Breakfast, lunch or dinner, If I was hungry I would make me a bowl of Cheerios, with or without milk.  I also remember waking up on Saturday mornings and making myself a big bowl of cereal and watching cartoons.  I probably remember it mainly because it was my only chance at watching cartoons for the week (Yes, I’m that old). Even though my girls can watch cartoons and videos on demand, I love when Peyton take the initiative to shares her Cheerios with her baby sister.  With the help of Cheerios my girls can share a special moment with family near and far and so can you.  Keep reading for details.
