Cold cereal

As many know, we’re having our first child sometime in early April. I think ours might be the first baby built entirely out of cold cereal. I haven’t calculated the numbers, but we–and by ‘we’ I mean ‘Hilary’–goes through about three or four bowls a day, maybe five or six boxes a week. Is this common? Does it explain why children are so keen on cold cereal?
