I am on the search for “somethin’.” In Commuter Girl’s world that means a snack. I think she must have heard me asking her if she wanted something to eat and now she just asks for “something.” It cracks me up what she picks up. Tonight she was flipping through a book and told me she had a b.a.t.h. Wow. I know, she got the word wrong, but she spelled it right!
Anyway, I digress. Commuter Girl gets in the car and immediately wants a snack. And, not just one snack, but multiple snacks. She’ll eat a little bit and then ask for “somethin’” else. I know I should probably offer her one thing and if she doesn’t want that she’s out of luck, but I’d rather not deal with the argument, to be perfectly honest. I’m looking for good car snacks that are reasonably healthy. Oh, and easy to clean up since a large percentage of the food will end up in Commuter Girl’s hair, on the floor, in the car seat, on the door, and on her hands.
We found some organic animal crackers, and she seems to like pretzel sticks. The big find recently was Late July’s organic bite-size cheddar cheese crackers. Raisins haven’t gone over so well — she’ll eat one or two and then move on. She loves popcorn, but I’m not a huge fan of her sitting in the back seat eating popcorn while I’m driving. I try to bring fruit, but other than grapes it just gets too messy. Maybe I’ll go to Whole Foods and just wander the aisles.
