Ponderings of vitamin water...

So, I finally gave in...I tried vitamin water. (Yeah, they don't capitalize it.) It's a drink that contains zero juice but is chock full of vitamins.
It also has someone on the staff with a great sense of humor. At least they think they have a great sense of humor. The side of my bottle of glaceau vitamin water "essential" orange-orange (c+calcium) *whew that was a long name* has this to say:

"ah, orange juice commercials. funny stuff. mom cheerfully prepares some huge breakfast while the rest of her family sleeps. sure this could happen. but every morning? please. maybe if mom were heavily medicated, in which case, we wouldn't condone operating a stove or any electrical appliance.

for those of us who don't live in an orange juice commercial, there is still a way to get your morning nutrition. this product has calcium and lots of vitamin c, so you can get your day started right, minus the whole stepford mom thing.

vitamins + water = all you need"

I just have one thing to say... Haven't these people ever heard of a CAPITAL letter?

Well, okay, I have two things to say...I love getting up in the morning and making breakfast for my family before they are all awake.

I get to have the house to myself quietly sipping tea and cooking breakfast. And my kids are happy to see me when they crawl out of bed because I've made eggs, grits, turkey sausages, hash browns, oatmeal, French toast, pancakes or waffles *wait when was the last time I made waffles*.

Point being, I am far from being a "stepford mom" but I still have a wink of a June Cleaver type in me.

So, vitamin water writer, don't dog the breakfast cook unless you've eaten in her house! Because once you have, you'll realize you have to make fun of someone else.

vitamins + water + mom's love and breakfast = all you need


  1. it's a joke. lighten up! :)

  2. Oh, I know it's a joke...didn't you read my sarcasm between the lines?
