a boy and his cracker

If this set of photos were an art exhibition, it would be called a boy and his cracker.  The love that one boy has for his crackers.

Ever since finding these crackers Arren has been obsessed with them.  I don’t know if it’s the taste, if it’s how it dissolves in his mouth or that it eases his teething pain, maybe it’s a combination of all of those things.

Either way, these crackers have saved us from an endless amount of teething discomfort.   He loves gnawing on these crackers and biting little pieces off.  Sometimes he bites off more than he can chew and makes a whole show about it.  Cracker pieces go flying and he starts diving toward the floor to try and grab any stray cracker he can.  I like to think of it as a trust exercise; is there such a thing as too much trust in your Mama’s ability to hold on to you?

It’s the cutest thing when he sees me getting the crackers, he starts bouncing excitedly and grabs it right out of my hand.  Obviously he hasn’t learned manners yet, but hopefully soon he will be wowing me with his gentleman like manners.  Right now he’s incredibly selfish and doesn’t want anyone to have a cracker, he gets really angry when I take a little nibble of his cracker.

The only problem I have with these crackers is that it get’s everywhere!  and Arren loves smearing it on everything.  At the end of the day I get to look forward to brushing cracker out of my hair that has dried to have a slight concrete consistency.


How can I be mad at such a happy little cracker eater and something that has brought so much comfort to his teething discomfort.

Get yourself some  baby mum-mum crackers STAT!  Arren’s favorite is the banana mum-mums, but I’m a big fan of the original crackers!  These are so wonderful, because they are gluten free, egg free and dissolves really easily, perfect for my delicate little snowflake.
