In my world: “Mummy, you eat it!”
DS has recently been insisting on having his fruit like strawberries and grapes whole (as opposed to being cut into smaller pieces and the seeds removed from the grapes).
On one hand, I’m pretty happy about him discovering the joys of using his teeth, (although I still keep a close watch when he’s eating grapes).
On the other, though, I’ve been discovering a number of these random little bitten through fruits on the table, on the floor, or handed personally to me, with an accompanying request for a brand new grape or strawberry. And when I hand it back and ask him to finish it up first, he’ll push back and insist that I eat up the half chewed fruit!!
In season or not, grapes and strawberries are pretty pricey a punnet…so don’t waste, right?
So I am now, officially, one of THOSE mums who pops my child’s half-masticated food into my mouth, without missing a beat.
Sometimes in the middle of cleaning the rooms, I discover little gems left behind by the children. This Friday series was started with the intention of celebrating the imagination and creativity in a young child’s world…and hoping that it’ll bring a little ray of inspiration and joy to your day, as it does mine.
