This topic "piggybacks" on the priorities topic where we discussed what we gave up as working women and moms, what do you think our children give up...honestly!? What do you think they gain? Also please mention your own mothers status and your experience of a child as a SAH or WOH.

My grandpap used to keep a bottle of brandy in the refrigerator for coughs and colds.

Kind of a personal question, don't you think?

Yes ITA, that's what I said.

Yes. We don't observe the same extreme crash with cereal as we do with hot chocolate. In fact other than wanting morning snack a half hour before they normally get hungry (and that can be attributed to the fact that they didn't want eggs, not the cocoa in the cereal), they have no adverse reactions. If we did then cocoa krispies would also be "banned".
