    Remnants of the snack remained, whereas the child was just gone…

    Yet another reason why parents buy cars rather than lease them.

  • Keely

    Here you see the cheeze-its cowering in fear from the dreaded preditor known as the “child”.

  • Cheryl Luna

    This is just a back seat. Just wait until you've seen what they've done with the whole house!

  • Trish

    OMG, that's my car! Did my ex-husband send this in?

    • sj64

      Seriously? Now THAT is pretty funny you gotta admit.

    Watching Alvin and the Chipmunks before school has REALLY become a problem for us…

  • Megan

    When mom said no pets, they hatched a plan to catch a mouse.

  • Donna

    note to self… put more stinky socks in the car, it repels the dirt and grim.

  • JuliaL

    How do they get so much cheese into cheez-its? Stomp it in!!!!!!

  • Kate D

    The seat protector mat is like a single sandbag trying to hold back a flood.

  • Heather

    “Cheez-it! Get your own box!”… coz mine is on the floor

    When they can't reach the floor, it takes a special kid to grind Cheez-Its into the carpets.

  • luckyinlife


  • Veronica Hudon

    Oh please, that ain't nothing! Until you have had a toddler step on a milk carton and it not get noticed until the milk has spoiled into the carpeting you don't know what a mess is!

    • Rodney Larcombe

      My 48 year old mother has done that. Although it was in the cupholder as she was going over a speed hump. She is now in the process of trying to sell said car

  • webhill

    Rich in preservatives, these snacks provide an added level of floor-mat protection.

  • kikithespunkymunky

    Good thing I put the floorboard mat under the car seat instead of on the floor. Thank goodness nothing got on the seat.

  • Cameron75

    Kid says, “Mom, I can't find anything to eat!”

    Mom says, “I know where you can look!!”

  • LitanyofBritt

    So e'rybody better lock up yo cars, hide yo cheez-its, and hide yo socks, cause they be messing up e'rything out here.

    If a kid were a Piñata, would this be the candy inside?

  • kmdy

    I protected the seat but I to forgot to protect the floor. Now, where did I put those car mats? Drat! The kids destroyed those too!

  • Melanie Seguin

    It's a good thing she has those Seat savers!

  • carriemj

    What? Is there something wrong with this photo? I see nothing abnormal here …

  • Jackie

    Well, at least the seat protectors worked.

  • shayna72

    “What? We were saving that for later, Mom.”

  • trooperyork

    You know your a mom when….you can feed and clothe your kids for a week without ever leaving the van.

    In the case of a disaster, a family of four could live for a week in our car!

  • LuvThisPage

    Please!? How can I be entirely to blame? You are the one who put protective covering on the vinyl seats and overlooked the carpeted floors… Hello!? Gravity!!!!

  • Doodyfulls

    I see the problem! You tried to protect your car – act like you don't care and they will be nicer to it.

  • austexcynthia

    3-second rule be damned, I want those Cheez-its!

  • hushhh

    Another crime committed by the 'not me kid'. Can't wait till I find him, he has a lot of explaining to do!

  • MmeZeeZee

    This isn't a suggestion. I just want to say that that's way better than our back seat. :sigh:

  • lmclaurin

    No wonder the kids keep complaining they are hungry after having a snack in the car.

  • kenbo

    It's not a mess, it's a buffet.

  • lindalu2

    Find the child with one orange sock, and you'll find the culprit!

  • Bruce

    Cheezits and french fries. Somehow, it's hard to feel an pity for a person who willingly puts this crap into thier child's body.

  • sammy378

    Oh, that's nothin'…..We got a couple of Happy Meals crammed into the seat crevices.
