Play With Me

Neat freak? Never!

When my kids were young, I spoon-fed them food from baby jars. My Chinese mother was against getting messy with food. Well, she really hated messy anything, but food was for eating not play. So I was careful around my kids, laboriously spoon-feeding them while grabbing a bite for myself whenever I could.

My daughter is doing it better. She allows her kids to hand feed themselves from their first attempt at solid food. She makes sure everything is healthy and appropriate. No choking hazards! (I’ve had to quarter grapes and squish blueberries.) But the kids eat at their pace, she can enjoy her meal, and I get fun pictures in the process.

A nightly bath is also part of the routine, but hey, we did that too, and I was spoon feeding them everything!
