When does it end?????

Ok, I know you're supposed to let your child feed themselves, but seriously? I gave Eli his supper early because ours was still cooking. So, I was in the kitchen and Aaron was doing things around the house. When I turned around, this is what I saw. This is the second time he has made such a mess of his food. Needless to say, we put an end to that! Now he pretends to throw the food, then smiles at you and puts it in his mouth. Little stinker! I want to know when they start eating WITHOUT making such messes. Without us having to change clothes. Without having to wipe his hands and face with 4-5 paper towels... Man! It gets better, right???

I promise it gets better or at least different! Every age/stage has its ups and downs. At least you're keeping your sense of humor through this mess! Caden started to get a lot less messy at the dinner table about 2 and a half, though he's four and we still see some spills fairly regularly, but at least now he uses a napkin by himself and doesn't like the mess.
Hang in there and try to enjoy it while it lasts. They change and grow up so fast!! ~ Sarah
