If you know me, I'm about as OCD with cleanliness as it may get,
my car would disagree at the moment, but hey I didn't say I was perfect. I'm just one of those moms that likes to feed the baby/toddler to avoid any messes. And by messes I mean applesauce on the floor, walls, windows, and under the booster seat that's hidden for weeks until you decide "oh hey maybe I should check under there" ...I would just rather avoid "those messes". But against - what I like to think is - my better judgement, I decided to let my 16 month old feed himself these last few days for the sake of, well, being a kid! Ha. It was surprisingly less messy than I expected, but then again he just kept the mess all in one place... his face/body.
Photos to elaborate...
Day 1: Applesauce. I was sadly unprepared for this new "wear my food" stage. So this is all I was able to capture.Lucked out on this one! I just so happened to catch almost every second of his experiment with this new freedom.
Who needs a spoon?
Well that was fun.
And then that "let's wear the placemat on my face until that gets boring, and just throw it on the floor" moment.
