Obviously Moms Were Not Part of the Focus Group

I saw this cereal at Dollar Tree today. For real, ya’ll!




Oh Dollar Tree, how I love thee and your untold treasures and blog fodder that await me. I went looking for goody bags for Miss C’s upcoming birthday party, and found muffin tops.


Muffin top, or dunlap as Oprah calls it, will forever have a different meaning to me now that I’m a mother (and one who has had two c-sections and who experiences a flab-alanche every time she sits down thank you very much). Wearing a bathing suit nearly every day for the past week will do that to you.

p.s. Apparently (and why am I not surprised), someone has launched an online Muffin Top Museum.

    LOL! yes, great minds think alike. I placed a link to here. I didn’t know you too had C-sections 🙂

    Thanks for that Muffin Huntin’ link. I added that there too 🙂

    Your mom is skinnier than my mom so if I don’t watch out my muffin top will be way bigger than yours. It’s in our genes.

    You know a guy named that cereal. Or some dumb blonde with a fabulous flat stomach that has yet to be ruined by child birth…..

    I had a fabulous flat stomach in 1997 right before hubby and I got married.

    It’s in there somewhere…I just KNOW IT!

    I can’t think “muffin-top” any other way either. But I try very hard to not think of this word ever, especially when I look in the mirror. Wow, they actually made a product called muffin-tops. Wouldn’t want stock in that company.

    Oh that was funny.

    As a mom with 2 c-sections, I too have serious muffin-top action which I like to keep hidden beneath my shirt (at least I try to camouflage it).

    I would not buy those muffin tops! Too much of a reminder!

    I’m gonna steal “flab-alanche” from you. Oh that’s a good one!
