I TURNED MY BACK FOR A MINUTE..

Posted on: Thursday

..and my yogurt with lemon zest and agave was gone.. sacrificed to two little hands.  And how Biet loved it.  I could have stopped it when I first saw her lifting the container up to her face, but I didn't.  I could have stopped her when she began her little ritual of letting Nico lick her fingers and then sticking them back in her mouth, but I didn't.  I was too tired to stop her, and happy that she was getting some good protein in her belly.  Maybe a better Mama would have nipped all these bad behaviors in the bud instead of relishing the 15 minutes of silence while her daughter was occupied and content, but I just wasn't that Mama today.  I figured, she's eating at the table, family style, eager about feeding herself, and an enthusiastic sharer.  There's three points for Mama. So I sat back, snapped a few photos, and caught up on emails while she covered everything in yogurt. A little mess never hurt anybody..

  5. You are a great momma... she needs to let loose once in a while and feed herself. As for the mess, that is why you have a dog! The best floor and high chair cleaner that ever!! Sometimes when my toddler makes that kind of mess, I just let the dog in and he cleans up for me. Thankful.

    1. I don't know how parents survive this stage without a dog! Nico is our little maid after mealtime, meticulously cleaning the floors and high chair until they sparkle (of course, I re-clean all of the slobber off). Its a win-win situation.

    1. Thank you Danielle! I do savor these moments, thats for sure! I know that she will never be this little again. Wow, a Mama of four! (If Gaby had his way, we would already have four or more!) You must be one hard-working Mama!
