I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

Yucky Utensils

Ok, not the utensils themselves, but the mess I have to clean up afterwards.  No, I really do not want to still be feeding my child when he's 10, but this whole teaching them to use utensils is for the birds.  It's times like these that I wish I had a dog to clean up the mess surrounding June Bug's chair, and perhaps June Bug himself.

diligently licking the spoon clean
The best part or the worst part, depending on how you look at it, is he get's it. He understands 100% how to use his spoon and fork and he LOVES it.

Why is that bad you ask? Because he insists on doing it himself at every.single.meal.  Thank goodness for summer break and not having anywhere to be since meal time is officially 6 hours of our day as he happily manhandles his spoonfuls of yogurt or forkfuls of pasta. He's a dedicated utensil user, down to licking the damn thing clean after every.single.bite.  If only he kept himself as clean as he does his spoon a bath wouldn't be required after every meal.
