What to do With the Cheerios Found in Your Underwear

IMG_0778

My little snacker was about to use the bathroom when she noticed a Cheerios which had somehow found its way into her underwear. Before I had time to react she popped it in her mouth.

“A Cheerios in my underwear Mom!”

“I ate it.”Β 

And to think I used to wash her pacifiers which fell on the floor. . .

Her mouth has been found with someone’s used gum, sand, bath water, and even her own boogers (this one makes me shudder). Just today I heard her squealing with laughter to discover her wetting and sucking on an old sponge.

When it comes to eating something a little nutritious, however, like broccoli hidden under piles of cheese, her mouth is suddenly glued shut.

How can a child who immediately puts anything chocked full of germs into her mouth be such a picky little eater when it comes to real food?Β 

Alas, I think I may start throwing celery and carrot sticks on the ground when we are out. At least then I know she will be unable to refuse the tempting bite!

    1. Oh, I am so glad to bring some fun memories your way! Yes, you were lucky! I am sure it is just a stage but the girl barely eats any “food” at all. Sometimes I wonder how she survives on so little! My son on the other hand eats like a horse–probably the reason he weighs as much as his “big” sister. πŸ™‚

  1. This is so funny! It’s so true that we are so careful when they are babies and then as soon as they are able, they’re putting everything in their mouths. Wolfy thinks it’s funny to kiss weird things, like walls and random dogs. I don’t understand it.

    1. Haha, that is hilarious!! At least he is a little lover! πŸ™‚ Yes, I was so very sanitary in the beginning. I now try to convince myself it is building up a good immune system!

    1. Yes, especially the boogers, this one turns on my gag reflex! πŸ˜‰ I suppose I was the same way once upon a time. Thank goodness we finally grow out of it. . . just hoping my daughters maturity comes sometime very soon!

    1. Haha, I hope you do!! Perhaps if we mop the floor first it wouldn’t be so bad. It could not be any worse than what they are doing anyways, right? We will have to report back our results soon! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, it seems hopeless in preventing! At least we know they would do fine if needing to survive in the wild. Bugs and such would have no problem making their way down! πŸ™‚

  5. My son is always picking up things from the floor and bringing them to me. Usually a tiny leaf, dirt, or who knows. Yesterday. Yesterday it was booger. And not a dried one either. I can see him eating out of his undies in the future!

    1. Oh, yuck!! Boogers are the all time worst for me, literally makes me feel like I may vomit when my daughter tells me she ate one! Yes, little man will be picking the cheerios out his undies before you know it! πŸ™‚

  6. I always found this funny too. My daughter is an insanely picky eater. She pull chicken apart and throw it in her juice and drink it. I have watched her eat Frosted Flakes dipped in ranch dressing, but give her a normal meal a it is gross. Cheerios are a favorite though too.

    1. Haha, just this evening my daughter was dipping chicken into my iced tea and eating it all up! Frosted Flakes and ranch, I am sure she would devour this as well, but let us give them a nice Cobb salad to go with the ranch and watch their mouths suddenly unable to open! πŸ™‚

      1. I steeled myself against germs long ago…I figure there’s only so much I can do to keep him away from all those dirty things and his immune system will only benefit from ingesting all of said nastys…blah haha
