Can we just agree that you are a messy eater? It’s a miracle if we can make it through one meal without finding a new use for peanut butter as hair styling product, or picking quinoa out of the dog’s fur. Sometimes I think we’d be better off wheeling you outside in your highchair and hosing the lot of you down, dog included.
Though, I can’t claim that I’m not at least partially to blame for this. I’m a fully grown adult and I still find mysterious stains on the front of nearly every one of my shirts. I have no idea who borrowed my clothes and put them there. Sometimes I swear there is a hole in my lip, or maybe I just miss my mouth entirely and fling food and drink willy nilly at my hapless self. Eye/hand coordination has never been my strong suit.
So, I’m sorry if you inherited your messy mealtime behavior from me, dear one. And I do realize that you’re only 14 months old. But, please, can we try to keep the egg yolks out of our ears?
