Ok - Seriously! The snack trap that I once loved and cherished is now something that I look at with sadness and despair. You know what I'm talking about - - - those little bowls with handles and the little lid that the kids can get their hand through but MOST of the snack stays inside the bowl instead of all over the floor of your car. Ok - you know what I mean. Anyway, I loved those things before Nate's dx. Both of my girls used them all of the time while we were out and about. What better way to pacify a toddler than by feeding them a bowl full of CARBS!
I never really thought about how many carbs I gave my kids because I never had to think about it.
- Driving around all day running errands - throw some cheerios in the snack trap and we are good to go.
- Shopping - you betcha just add some goldfish into the snack trap and you've got at least an hour to shop.
- Lunch with your friends - that probably requires goldfish and cheerios plus the can of Puffs.
Having a toddler with Type 1 is hard for so many reasons & the snack trap is one of them! I am having snack trap withdrawals.
Ok, I got that off of my chest and feel better.
Moving on . . .
Does anyone have any ideas on how to entertain a 16-month old while cooking dinner? I used to put him in his high chair with (yep, you guessed it) a handful or 2 of Cheerios. Now what?
He throws his toys down or across the room and then wants me to pick them up and give them back to him (repeat this 100X and you get the idea).
Ideas welcome . . .
