Check out this little face:
You may notice her face wasn’t always the cleanest, that’s because she loved to feed herself. My daughter nursed until she was old enough to eat table foods and once that time came it was all about her independence. When it was time to eat, she “needed” to do it herself. More often than not it ended up in messy moments for both of us. For her while she was eating and for me when I was cleaning it up. I didn’t mind the messes, in fact I found they brought a smile to my face each and every time.
I somehow always seemed to choose the messiest foods and treats for her to eat. I seem to be in good company with some of the moms and dads you can hear stories from on Happy Family’s facebook page. Some of them seem to deal with the same issues I dealt with like the one bite rule (this, in fact, is still in effect to this day), sneak attacking it by changing out the real thing for something fake, and of course going overboard to get them to try something. Check out how Busy Dad Blog does it:
Yep, I sure did several of those things…okay so maybe I still do a few. The videos are hilarious as you watch the improv actors carry out the feeding stories shared by the moms and dads.
