This, my friends, is why you are to pay attention to your 2 1/2 year old when he is shopping with you. AND this is why I hate those shopping carts with the cars on the front.
Yes, what you see in the picture above is a package of Kraft Singles cheese that Logan chewed into today when we were shopping. He was getting bored so I gave him that package of cheese to hold, and yes, he was in the car part of the cart where I can not see him very well. I noticed not long after I gave it to him that he had it up to his mouth and sternly informed him that he may not chew on it or put it in his mouth. That generally is all it takes for him to listen when it's something like this.
Well, I had a bunch of stuff to get and I was almost done when I decided to peek down at him since I suddenly realized I hadn't heard anything out of him for a long time. And I was horrified. He had two of the pieces of cheese in his mouth...still in the plastic wrapper mind you. And the rest of the package was laying at his feet. Boy was I not impressed. Let's just say that I took the package from him and I don't think he'll be doing that again anytime soon! :) And I think this mama learned a lesson about getting so involved in shopping that she forgets to check what her little boy is occupied with.
Seriously though, I really don't like those carts with the cars in the front. I think it's a conspiracy against parents. Logan always wants to use them of course and I hate them. They are bulky and hard to maneuver, he's forever wanting to lean out of the thing, nearly banging his head on stuff, and I can't see what he's up to very well. Anyone else share my feelings?
So anyway, if you're hungry, stop by for some cheese. I'll try to give you some of the un-chewed-upon stuff!
