Carter only happily devours strawberries or cookies these days. My life is a constant hunt to find something he'll sit & eat in portions more than a single pincer grasp.
Enter: Buttered Cheerios.
How I discovered them, simplified? My husband's cousin mentioned them in facebook photo comment to my sister-in-law. Mr. Google did the rest.
Cheerios have fiber, protein and vitamins. They're easy to digest and low in sugar, so they're a healthy snack.
You can transform them into a (slightly less healthy) addiction for your toddler by throwing a tablespoon of butter and some salt in a pan and sauteeing them up. Keep the heat on medium and stir until they're all coated and toasty. Cross fingers. Close eyes. Offer to picky toddler.
I love Oprah as much as the next chick. But have you caught these past two shows - with all the goodbye performances? You'd think she was dying. I don't think Michael Jackson's funeral was even as extravagant. I have it playing on my DVR right now, and I'm fully expecting the President of the United States to be the next surprise performance (and my brain's playing with the possibility that she's a bigger star than he is). The woman can only take so much flattery until she's all humbled out; she's exhausted, leave her alone already.
In other news, I wish Extreme Couponing would just go off the air. Everyone's doing it, so all my researched, couponed free stuff is always sold out. Doesn't lassoing a small child into the store with me give me dibbs? Just sayin.'
