When I was a child, I used to put sugar on my cereal, even Frosted Flakes. Cheerios came with no sugar, so they were duly double doused.
I think that my mother probably didn’t know about this sugaring. Even though we were poor, she always made an effort to see that we ate well within the limited means available. My Nana knew, of course, because first, Nana somehow knew everything and second, she approved. #watchersandjoiners
