The Mess Monster

So I know you are supposed to let your kids learn how to do things for themselves, but this is why I have the hardest time letting Skye learn how to feed herself! It's sooooo messy!!!!! I would rather feed her myself and keep the mess to a minimum because it just makes me squirm to see her like that and to think about how I'll have to clean it up after. But lately, I've been doing my best to just let her do her own thing otherwise I guess she never will learn to feed herself and I'll still be doing it when she is 16. And that would not be good!

I swear one of my brothers was a messy eater into his teens. :) I'm jealous you can keep Skye clean when you feed her yourself. I just started solids with Lissie and she spits out 75% of what goes in.

Ah, the memories! Not only of when Skye was here, but of each of you kids! Congratulations on finally letting her be messy and learn to use that spoon! Way to go, Mommy!

Way to go Skye! I am impressed you can keep her clean when you feed her yourself....that is always when I slopped it all over my kids. hehe!
