So I posted this pic of my youngest last week and thought I would share more since we got such a great response to it. It was a random morning, nothing special, except it dawned on me I had never let her try to spoon feed herself. What was I waiting for???!!! As an EI therapist I know that no new skill can be learned unless it can first be practiced. And as an experienced mother I know that some skills require a little mess too!
So here you have it. Her first experience with spoon feeding independence. She did great! More importantly she had fun! Would I have allowed such a mess with my first child…probably not! But that’s one of the many benefits of being the third; mommy’s tired, older and wiser. Which means she gets looser rules and more FUN!
