A bird's best friend: Usually when I walk with Lily, I give her some sort of snack to keep her occupied on our trek such as goldfish, fruit snacks, or animal crackers. The couple crackers and crumbs left in her stroller tray I usually just chuck on the ground to feed the birds and ants. The other morning, there were old crackers in her tray that I didn't chuck the previous day, so on the ground they went. When I came back to the car an hour later to my amazement they were all gone.

See, I had thought that over a day or so these crackers were being taken bit by bit by an ant or bird, but little did I know that within an hour, these apparently ravenous animals clean up in a matter of minutes. Except the frosted animal crackers with sprinkles on them...you know the ones. They don't really eat those up. And they take awhile to decompose. Sulfuric acid could not get the grease spots off of the pavement from those babies. So I don't toss those or really buy them anymore. The birds love the goldfish though. Might have something to do with the fish part?!
