Don't sweat the small stuff

After three bowls of Rice Krispies this morning, Caleb had finished the bag. He asked for more. I told him when I was done checking my email, I would get him some new cereal from the storage downstairs. Instead, my resourceful two-year old found the Raisin Bran in the pantry in the kitchen, pulled it out, pulled out the bag from the box and started eating it by the fistful. Deciding it looked like too much fun, Colin has also joined in. Yes, my kids love Raisin Bran, but they are also enjoying the game of digging for raisins. Colin is concentrating really hard as the "treasures" become harder and harder to find. Now they are bringing handfuls of cereal to the table to show me. Now Caleb put his handful on the floor to eat. At least I mopped yesterday.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

I love it! Your boys are happy, they're eating healthy food, and nobody is in any danger, so let them keep at it! There is SO MUCH small stuff with little ones, that there's no use fighting it at all.
