I’m not clear on promotional considerations in the SavvyDad blogosphere, and I can certainly attest to not receiving any compensation in exchange for brand mention, so I shall carefully refer to the following healthy all-grain cereal ‘O’s in the following post as ‘See Ya Laters’.
As you moms know, a baby’s diet changes like a prairie wind. Just when you’re used to smushed stuff, fruit pieces enter the scene. Then bizarre melting crackers designed specifically for babies are smeared but enjoyed, followed by generic and recognizable food stuffs’my current favourite being, See Ya Laters. I can mindlessly munch on these all day. Coincidentally, so can Baxter. But his idea of mindless and mine differ greatly. I am able to use pinching fingers and so is Baxter’at times. The other times it’s like the carnival game in the big glass box that drops a haphazard crane bucket onto a mound of loot. Baxter’s hand drops and, as luck would have it, at least one See Ya Later O would adhere. Then it’s as simple as navigating the O towards the gaping mouth. More often than not, the O is peeled off his hand during rotation and insertion. Worry not, Baxter is undeterred; in fact he begins chewing automatically, although the look of disappointment is difficult to miss.
Sometimes Baxter’s hand rises towards his face looking like the tentacle of an octopus. Ten or more O-suction cups writhe before being plunged into his oral abyss. And even with those odds, not one will be consumed and onto the floor they go.
I wish we still had our dog.
