"mommy, if i say 'cheerios', that means i just want plain cheerios, and if i say 'cheerios with milk', that means i want cheerios with milk." and so it begins. plain cheerios are best served to three and one year old boys in a shallow bowl, on the floor, where proper kitties eat their food. if the kitty headbands are available, that is even better. meowing is optional, but extremely cute.
