|How can you not smile at this lovely yogurt face?|
Yes, that is my hair band around her neck.
My mommy says that
|I Feel Pretty. Oh So Pretty! Look Ma! No eczema!|
Soon after the above self-feeding experiment, Mommy came home with different spoons. Short stubby little spoons with deep buckets and chunky handles. I was a little leery at first until I realized I could fit way more into my mouth without the precious food falling onto the floor. However, they are not as good for catapulting food across the room. To get that glorious splatter effect, you have to throw the actual eating utensil. In this household, when that happens, Mommy says "time out" and moves my chair into the middle of the room. Screaming is an excellent way to let people know you are displeased. Although Mommy cringes. I see it in her face as she tries to secretly ignore me. So I scream louder. I am very good at screaming.
Mealtime is all about relaxation and enjoying the culinary experience. Kicking your feet up so-to-speak. This is me being very ladylike. Admire my beautiful feet.
Sometimes it gets a little dull at the dinner table while waiting for the food to arrive so it is important to self-entertain. Like so. . . ooh, there is my Buh-bo-bah! Think of this as practicing your self-help skills.

Finally, it is polite to let the cook know that you really enjoyed the food. I recommend scraping the bowl clean and then flipping it over to make sure you did not miss any morsels of yumminess.
If the food is especially tasty, it is common courtesy to share your food because sharing is nice.
|Share. Thank. Please.|
Oh and do not drink to much.
