The Oatmeal Wars

Big Brother enjoys oatmeal for breakfast. (How he can eat a hot breakfast in this heat is beyond me…and yes, I’m drinking coffee as I type this…)

This morning he made his bowl of instant oatmeal–2 packets–and naturally Little Brother had to have some too. He’d already eaten breakfast but I made him some anyway. And the two brothers sat at the table and scooped up their oatmeal.

I guess being Little Brother has made him competitive, because before I knew it, he was bragging: “My oatmeal is gooooooooood! Is yours? Nooooooo!”

Yes, this is what we’ve been reduced to around here: trash-talking about breakfast.
