What's your favorite food?

Isn't it just about impossible to capture just how GROSS kids can get when they eat?  This all looks pretty messy, but in reality it took four wet rags to clean up the girl and the table - FOUR!  SO MESSY!

One of Caroline's very favorite foods is yogurt.  One of Caroline's pet peeves is to be fed (she wants to do it herself).  One of her reactions when she's peeved is to shriek at the top of her lungs while flailing her arms, kicking her legs, and hitting everything possible.  Awful, yes, and even worse when I have a nice spoonful of yogurt that she just sit so hard it flung against the wall.  So to avoid shrieking fits AND get her to eat her favorite food, this is what we go through!  I know it's all temporary (she will have NO friends in school if she eats like this), so I just enjoyed the mess and took a picture.

That would send Jonathan into cardiac arrest. Definitely not worth the fight though!

What a happy smile! And the rags you use to clean her up are totally washable so I say dig in, Caroline!
