On a normal day, being a mom is tough. Working, stay-at-home, single, military. Regardless of the rewards, it is a relentless and exhausting role. And as if every category of motherhood didn’t already come with its fair share of challenges, fate decided to throw a pandemic on top of it all. *Moms around the world collectively release a visceral, carnal “UGHH!!” into the wind* What gives, World?! The last few months have been “trying”, to use an utterly feeble descriptive word in this scenario. So today, I am taking a step back, mentally checking out, and treating myself to a luxurious bath and creative treat from Malt-O-Meal.

The pandemic has hit moms especially hard. Not only are they charged with most of the worries and minute tasks of keeping a family safe, the brunt of childcare and education has also fallen on their shoulders. First nature deals a vicious blow, and now societal structure deals a second. Luckily, there are some great companies that are recognizing this unfair burden and offering up some levity in a stressful world. Malt-O-Meall is one of them. To honor this extra hardship, Malt-O-Meal is giving away $30,000 worth of personalized gifts to moms. For 30 days, the brand is offering two $500 gifts each day, along with Malt-O-Meal cereal for the winners’ pantries. And an extra perk, the prizes will all be from local businesses, providing additional support to business owners that have been impacted by the pandemic. If you’re interested in entering for either yourself or the loving mom in your life, then enter on the brand’s Facebook page now through June 25. 

On the heels of this fabulous idea from Malt-O-Meal, I am going to take a moment to myself. It’s a pandemic, I am beyond stressed. So dang-nabbit I want a bubble bath and some nostalgic cereal treats! So I have decided to add “Treat Yo’ Mamma” curriculum to my daughter’s homeschool schedule. It includes a math lesson with a simple, kid-friendly recipe to create Malt-O-Meal Crispy Treats. 

PS! Malt-O-Meal cereal comes in over 30 delicious varieties, providing savvy moms with affordable, high-quality, great-tasting cereal options for the entire family. Family favorites include:

Now that the treats are in order, the rest of the ‘curriculum’ can commence. A reading lesson with a fun scavenger hunt to find mommy’s favorite hardcover on the bookshelf. Got to cover our ABCs! And lastly a science experiment where my daughter needs to figure out how many bubbles, bath bombs, and candles make for a luxurious bath. She quickly figured out that the more, the better… I couldn’t have been prouder. Oh and this was also a good time to learn the importance of putting away bath toys.

The last lesson will be timed to coincide with Daddy’s home arrival time. All that is left is to leave extra Berry Colossal Crunch® Crispies to distract the kid (and husband) folk!

Or in my daughter’s case, she just took the whole cereal bag and disappeared beneath the kitchen table.
