Everyone knows the saying "the best things in life are free" but slightly lesser known is the saying "the best toys in life are cheap". Maybe because I just made it up. But really, what kids love best are things like cardboard boxes, pots & pans, mud pies, and paper towel tubes. Amelia has reached the chocolate chip bag stage. Forget all of the rattles and special crinkle books. All you need is a healthy appetite for chocolate chips and then after you empty the bag...voila, you have the best baby toy ever. It's a win win situation. Guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment for your little one. This is not a paid advertisement (although maybe it should be).

It's also convenient for hiding behind to suck your thumb, hoping your mom won't notice.


  1. this is SO cute! Nestle definitely owes ya :)

  2. Haha! She's a cutie. Kids' different stages are so cool to observe. Israel's in the I-want-something-covering-my-entire-head-while-I-sleep stage.

  3. I wouldn't have thought of a chocolate chip bag! I will keep it in mind for new baby. :) I know thumb sucking is a bad habit, but it is so cute.

  4. Forget all those expensive toys when we have kids; I'll stick with your advise :) By the way, little Amelia is not-so-little anymore! I love her chubby cheeks & big eyes!
