The Crazy Suburban Mom: Omg, I think I'm collectable

Omg, I think I'm collectable

I don't know if anyone remembers back in August, me asking you guys to comment for food? To help me fill local food banks in conjunction with ShopRite Partners in Caring?


Well, my kid wanted me to do it because I would (mortifyingly) get my face on a box of Honey Nut Cheerios. I needed your 30 comments and was only hoping that my picture was the size of a Polly Pocket and thanks to y'all everyone is happy!


That's me...

I called my kid last night and told him where the picture was. He laughed (and laughed and laughed and laughed) and said, Ma, OMG - That is the COOLEST thing ever! I totally want that cereal box, can I have the box?

Everyone's happy. I'm happy because...


I am...


The size of...


Polly Pocket, maybe her baby sister.


Which is even better. The best thing is that ShopRite Partners in Caring was able to make a donation based on my, no - Your 30 comments. And they have something else going if you want to be on a cereal box (and live in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware). It's called Expressions of Hunger:

Sharing emotions, thoughts and feelings through music, poetry, performance, art, and storytelling has long been a way of communicating and enlightening others about an issue.

ShopRite Partners In Caring is asking for your help in fulfilling its mission to increase the awareness of hunger in our community.

Please submit an original video that depicts how you perceive the plight of the hungry or what a solution to hunger might be in the "Expressions of Hunger" video contest.

Share your most creative, original expression about hunger. It may be a song, a poem, a dramatically read story or a performance that you capture on video.

Thanks everyone for helping me make my kid very happy yesterday and for helping me, Shop-Rite and General Mills fill food banks in the New Jersey area.

That was a beautiful thing you did.

I was sure I'd left a comment earlier....I might be ripe for the looney bin!

Well congrats! You are now officially a collectable! (and a vintage one at that!). I'm kidding of course!

Vonlipi, you got that right.

Lynette, postage stamp sized and photoshopped to within an inch of its life. Thats the way I like my pictures :)

Wow. You have you face on a cereal box and you aren't even missing! I'm impressed. And it's kinda good cereal too--not like Count Chocula or anything. Wow. You are my new hero.

That is VERY cool! Congratulations. And what a perfect Mum-balance of being on the breakfast table cereal box, without embarrassing your son! Nice one! XX
