Kids go through stages so quickly that it amazes me just how fast I forget those stages too. For instance, I am finally starting to get used to having a toddler again. Many of the things I did with my son when he was 2 years old are coming back to me with my daughter.
For instance, I went out and purchased new toys for the fridge to keep her occupied while I cook. I decided my sanity was worth every single cent! I had actually forgotten that I used those fridge toys with my son when I was cooking and how much he loved them. Thankfully she loves them too and they keep her occupied.
Another thing I am remembering is how much my son loved snacks and finger foods, my daughter is following that same pattern. She loves little snack cups just for her. Of course, I do think she enjoys pouring them out more than actually eating them, then putting them all back in the cup again. She does this in the car too and I always shutter when my son’s principal opens his door to get him out of the car in the mornings. There is no telling what she is thinking about the back seat of my vehicle!
The worst part is, I actually clean it out every other day, I have an unlimited pass at the car wash that comes with free vacuuming, still it’s full of Goldfish crackers!
In saying this, I decided this week to make my daughter Meat & Goldfish crackers Parfaits. I wanted her to have a quick snack but also incorporate some meat into it because she tends to eat more snack foods and less protein.
The best part is that the 30 oz Goldfish crackers are currently on Rollback at Walmart! I typically pick up the Goldfish crackers made with Whole Grain.
Next up, I went and picked up clear plastic cups and a variety pack of lunch meat. Then, building the parfait is simple, just layer meat and Goldfish crackers then another flavor of meat with Goldfish crackers.
This made for the perfect snack time treat! I made these to take with us on the road to pick up my son from school. My daughter is much happier in the carpool line with snacks, this made a great treat for her. Then, of course, as soon as my son got in the car he wanted one too!
Once they were done, it was time for the backseat to be vacuumed, but they were both happy and loving their Meat & Goldfish crackers Parfaits!
