That's Not Baby Snack!

I'm sure most of you know that babies love to put things in their mouths. It's one of the ways they explore their new world. Aidan's been doing this for, well, a little under 20 months. Normally it's not a big deal. His toys are designed to be swallow-proof or at least swallow-resistant. His food was mushy and soft until his teeth came in. Now, he's eating dry cereal, cheddar crackers, pretzels, and other hard, crunchy things. The problem is this: cat food looks a lot like baby snacks.

We keep the cat food in a room behind a gate but we take it up at night so the cats don't gorge themselves. Tonight, Aidan managed to get his hand into the kitty dish but not quite to his mouth. I think it's only a matter of time before he's completely successful. I just hope he doesn't like it.
