Every mom has trouble deciphering her toddler's weird reactions and attachments. But Rose Bennett, a mom in Florida, may have hit upon the reason her son 17-month-old, Ben, couldn't get enough of the diapers she bought this past weekend.

After her supply ran out, the Pembroke Pines resident made an emergency run to Walmart to pick up another bag. The store didn't have Ben's usual size, so Bennett just sized up rather than splurge on a different brand. As she was changing her toddler, he looked at the little boy on the bag and said, "Ben!" It's true that there is a striking similarity, which could explain why the little boy started cuddling up to the bag every chance he got.
And his mom was so tickled by his reaction that she posted the pics to Twitter--where they were retweeted tens of thousands of times.

Bennett told Buzzfeed that it was the first time her son had seen a non-white baby on a package--especially one that looked so much like him. And because of her son's fierce attachment, Bennett is going to keep on buying that size diaper for as long as she can!
