I've discovered that, based on the contents of our recently-emptied vacuum cleaner canister, only one in one-hundred Cheerios or Cheerios-like objects (hereafter known as CLOs), such as "[Trader] Joe's Os" or "Toasty-Os," actually make it into the mouth of the average toddler. The rest end up in various places throughout the house and car and, ultimately, the vacuum cleaner. CLOs, with their central holes, are tricky things to vacuum up, too. There's something about the hole that seems to counteract the suction and keep the little suckers planted firmly on the ground. Either that, or we need to buy a better vacuum cleaner, like one of those $400 Dyson jobs that shines your shoes and sorts your laundry, too (it had better do something other than just suck up dirt for that much money).
