What is it about Cheerios that make *all* babies go crazy? Bring out that big yellow box and the happy feet start swinging, happy noises start gurgling, and the hands get poised – ready to capture that first one that hits the tray. (It’s actually really cute )
Maybe I should change the title of this because the twins still like dry cheerios. Hell, I’ll put some in a cup and “drink” dry cheerios now and again as well. Oh! And I know my older brother does the same thing – in the car on the way to work. And now that I think about it – I had a rabbit that would literally attack me when he saw that yellow box. So I guess it’s not just babies.
Who the heck invented Cheerios anyway? He must be one rich dude by now. Excuse me while I go look this up…………thanks for waiting. Now I know that you’re curious too
The Cheerios guy, Lester Borchardt, died at age 99 in 2007. And this website states that Cheerios (originally named CheeriOats) almost didn’t happen! wow. That would have been tragic.
