So I have been a bad mommy when it comes to teaching Cameron to self-feed. He will do finger foods but I haven't worked much with spoon feedings.
When he was little we were always going somewhere and I didn't want him to get messy (yeah, I know better now - who really cares, right?). He quickly learned that he doesn't have to feed himself because someone else will do it.
So I had an idea, on a night the boys were to get a bath I would put them at their table in their diapers and give them something they would REALLY want to eat - ice cream!
Although it looks good in the picture, Cameron wasn't having it. He didn't care what was in that bowl, he just wanted to take a bath.
Mitchell however was happy to explore, get messy and eat some ice cream (even if it was with his hands).
Maybe next time!
