I try to clean out my car every week. It seems like each week I dig out more and more lil baggies of cereal and grapes, also known as “tweets” (treats). Every evening Rohan climbs into his car seat after school (without letting me help, cuz he’s a big boy) and asks for his “tweet.” I remember to have his lil baggies at the ready so we can avoid a meltdown. Keeping a few stashed in my bags for when we’re out running errands is clutch for avoiding meltdowns too.
Oh my gosh, so this one time my boss popped out of his office with an eye squeezed shut and asked me if I had saline. Like a good assistant I was like, “Yep, sure do boss.” I whip out my purse and start yanking out all kinds of random stuff: a couple toy cars, one of Kaya’s shoes, some bows, and like 6 baggies of Frosted Mini Wheats… half eaten. I got to the saline eventually and my boss was fine, lol.
Full disclosure, when I’m out and about without the kids and feeling snackish, I will dig around in the back seat until I find a baggie of something to munch on until I get home, too. Sidebar: So, I have this thing about eating and drinking out of…. non-traditional implements. My mom hates this about me and yells at me when I do it at her house, even though I’m 30+ years old!
Example: She makes jams and uses these tiny cute mason jars. If I am grabbing a drink at my mom’s, I’ll use the lil mason jar. She can’t stand it. I’m not sure when this started, but I always remember doing things like this. Maybe it just makes it special? I dunno! Ha! It seems I have passed this quirk down to Rohan, because now sometimes if I give him snacks in his bowl, he’ll whine, but if I give him the exact same thing… in a 1/2-cup measuring cup… we’re all good! Even watched him take his two gummy vitamins, and put them into a spoon from his play kitchen, and then eat them from that, instead of just popping them in his mouth like a normal person. #thatsmyboy!
Anyway: So, Roey’s “tweets” in the millions of baggies are feeding his quirk, but now Kellogg’s Cereal In A Cup
is making my life a little easier by satisfying my and Roey’s quirk, and saving me time by not having to prep baggies of cereal for the boy all the time.
(he’s using my 21 Day Fix container as a cup, per his color-specific request)
This summer we have a bunch of road trips planned and we’ll be doing a lot of outside activities. Roey and Kaya will be in swimming lessons, and I’ll be running around like crazy as usual with the kids in tow. Having Roey’s “tweets” (Frosted Mini Wheats) already in a “special” bowl for him will be a lifesaver. Cereal In A Cup is perfect for on-the-go snacking during busy summer activities.
We’ll probably be at the beach weekly, and let me tell you, chasing an empty clear plastic baggie down the sand on the beach when it’s windy is NOT fun. #trustmedon’ttryitjustholdontighttoyourbaggie So I look forward to bringing the tweets in a bowl, and if Rohan lets it loose and the wind catches it, at least I’ll be able to easily see what I’m chasing down the beach! (Better yet, I can let Rohan chase it down and throw it away, it can be a game!)
What “tweets” do your kids enjoy when on-the-go?
