Saturday, Jon had a full day of work and so it was just us for another day. I was bumming but The Littles changed my outlook with their antics. I wish you could have been here and laughed with me. :)
These Littles are starting to want to do things, more independently, from mama and even sister. Stirred on by Betsy’s story of a mother who still spoon-fed her 4 year-old son, I decided to let The Littles assert their independence on a spoon.
Oh yeah, they knew they were big stuff.
It was hard to sit by and watch. They were not very skilled but did NOT want help. I finally stopped the fun when the spoons were dropped and bowls were being licked out of like puppy dogs.
At what age do you think is ideal for letting kids self-feed with silverware? Do you have any tips for teaching them?
And what fun is any meal if it doesn’t turn into many rounds of peek-a-boo?
But I have some sneaky peekers on my hands…
But my hands-down favorite moment of the day?
Little A was trying to put a cereal box on her head.
With a little bit of help, it turned into this.
The best part is that they walked around for at least 15 minutes like this, like it was totally normal to wear cereal boxes on their heads. :)
Oh Littles, don’t grow up too fast!
