Several years ago, Catherine gave Nate and I this Twinkie The Kid Twinkie holder as a housewarming present. Yeah, I know: Weird. Never the less, we’ve always liked it and have displayed the little guy in the kitchen window sill and later in the spice rack.
Now, however, we have an honest to goodness use for him: He’s Theo’s Cheerio holder.
This is great for two reasons: 1. Twinkie The Kid is finally getting some real play. Good for him. 2. Cheerios totally enthrall Theo. It’s like the whole world stops as he zeroes in on the teeny O, thumb and pointer finger positioned just so to lift the cereal into his mouth. Then: the crunch and the crazy look he gives us each time. And now, thanks to The Kid, we always have the magic Os on hand. Woo!
