Quite the combination

What happens when you mix... +
+ Cali on a lovely Sunday afternoon?
A child that just had the time of her life in the back seat of a car.
Messy, but oh so happy.

Note to moms(and self in case self forgets by the time baby #4 comes): Don't buy those Gerber biter biscuits for your toddler! I thought I'd give em a whirl. Well, first of all, when I opened the box I saw that they seriously look like doggie biscuits and I almost felt guilty handing her one. I almost impulsively said, "Good girl!" before handing her one. Secondly, they are hard as a rock. I tried biting into one and about broke my jaw. And lastly, they are the messiest baby finger foods ever created! Once wet, they create a paste that sticks like glue to everything in its path. I'm glad it provided Cali with a smile though...and me too :)

Such cute pictures! The best is when that sticky, gooey paste gets stuck down in all the little crevices of the car seat. :) Why do they make baby snacks so messy?? Probably the same reason they make cute bibs. :)

i am always scared to think about what fungi is growing on mia's carseat...so i choose to not think about it at all. i figure whatever doesnt kill her will just make her really immune to all things......;)

Oh those things ARE messy! Good call! She does look pretty darn cute though :)

I remember those! They get soggy in a jiffy, don't they -- and look at her happy little face. How cute!!

You are SO right! I forgot about how messy they are. Thanks for the reminder.

Aw, how cute. I'm just glad I didn't have to clean it. I bet you had a lot of fun doing just that. :)

I can't tell you how this brings back memories. Yes very messy. But maybe that beautiful smile was worth it! Ü

Oh just give her a few more, then when she can get it all over her hands she'll reach for the window and smear that with a beautiful design :)

yeah, we bought those with our first and haven't since. Sorry I didn't blog about then and tell you about it sooner!! :)

That is the reason why I never bought those Zwabick (or however you spell those silly things) toasts. It was like a sticky paste, you could adhere metal objects with that goop. Sorry you had to find out the hard way. Hope you washed it off before it dried!
