8 of the Craziest Places I've Found Cheerios (PHOTOS)

cheeriosOne of the biggest differences between my life as a parent and my life as a childless person is the lack of tiny O-shaped cereal that was in my life before I had my daughter. Joe’s O’s, Cheerios, Organic Spelt Chia Quinoa $20 O’s. They’re everywhere. No, everywhere. I dream in O-shaped cereal. My daughter loves them, and sometimes, even after I've whipped her up a nice, healthy meal, it's what she wants. "Snacks, Mama!" she'll demand.

But, as any parent knows, with a toddler eating (or doing anything), there comes a mess. And in this case the mess has manifested itself in tiny O-shaped cereal being the predominant form of decor in my home. Here, 8 crazy places I've found Cheerios.

  • My Bag

    My bag. An obvious one, but worth noting, because, literally? I don't think my bag has been Cheerio-free since my daughter started eating solids. Also, don't judge. Like you don't like Bubble Yum, too!

  • My Pocket

    The other day, I casually put my hands in my pockets while chatting with my husband and boom! Cereal in hand!

  • My Beautiful Moroccan Rug

    The best part about O-cereal pieces being on the expensive rug you saved up for 100 years for? The fact that they're almost impossible to spot, so when you step on them, they grind in nice and well, making them extremely difficult to get out.

  • My Kitchen Chairs

    Cheerios: It's what's for dinner.

  • My Front Porch

    "Welcome home, Nicole!" cried the Cheerios when she walked through the door.

  • My Couch

    Another obvious one, but I love how there was one lone O behind a pile of pillows, as if to say, "Just when you think we're gone ..."

  • The Dog's Bowl

    I didn't put the Cheerios in there. My husband didn't put the Cheerios in there. The dog didn't put the Cheerios in there ...

    Also, he needs water.

  • My Foot

    Walked down, bleary-eyed, the other morning and found this little got on my foot. Good morning!

  • The Culprit

    Kinda hard to be mad at this Cheerio-loving doll.
