Yes, lately I just keep the Cheerios in the bathroom. Why not? I would just have to go all the way to the kitchen every morning to get them, when I really just need them in the bathroom! You see, our newest routine (I say that because every time I think I have a schedule or routine figured out, Elliott goes and changes it on me) is for Elliott to eat Cheerios in her johnny jump up while I get ready in the morning.
"Mom! Where's my Cheerios?!"
This combines her two favorite things in the whole entire world: Jumping and Cheerios! Seriously, this girl would bounce and jump all day long if a) she could balance well enough to bounce without the assistance of a johnny jump up and b) she didn't wear herself out bouncing and need to take a nap. Oh, but she'd also need to take a break and eat some Cheerios. For a girl who doesn't eat much, she sure can pack away those toasty round O's!
This does make for quite a mess some mornings......imagine, if you will, Cheerios flying in every direction as Elliott jumps like a crazy-lady. Messy? Yes. Entertaining? Definitely. AND, Rosco thinks it's Christmas every morning since he can just hang out in the bathroom and eat the Cheerios that jumped ship. Yes, Elliott gets to jump and eat an O here and there, Rosco gets a little treat, and mommy gets to dry her hair and put on make-up :) We're all pretty much happy campers here lately!

See how mch air she gets? This is no joke.
Winding up for another big jump!
Sometimes you have to hold on 'cause this is one crazy ride!!
