My Pesach Cleaning Nemesis: Cheerios
My toddler Yaakov loves Cheerios with banana slices. Truth is, if I was willing, he would be thrilled to consume Cheerios with banana slices and no other food whatsoever.
While cleaning for Pesach, I’ve been noticing Cheerios all over the place. Under book shelves. Inside beds. On window sills.
Which got me wondering…How did those Cheerios arrive at such far-flung locales so far from the kitchen table?
Then I realized that those Cheerios got stuck onto Yaakov’s pants and sleeves and body, and then he transported them all over the house.
Just like pollen sticks to a bee’s legs to pollinate distant flowers.
And burrs stick to an animal’s fur to reach distant fertile soil to grow in.
So too those naughty Cheerios stick to my wandering toddler to reach the formerly cleanest corners of the Weisberg home.
The wonders of nature and chametz. Oy vey…:)
