A Warning

 All I have to say is, "What was Mommy thinking?"
In a rush to get Grant to the potty she handed my four year old sister the spoon.
"Feed Kate," she says as she races to the bathroom.
It's one thing to feed me baby cereal, but apples and blueberries, that's a whole nother story.
I think my face says it all.
One, she put WAY TOO MUCH on the spoon. She managed to fit a normal spoon's portion on the tiny baby spoon. On top of that, she moved at lightening speed. Before I had closed my mouth from the previous spoonful, she had another heaping spoonful forcing it's way in.
Obviously I can only hold so much. As my mouth was pried opened by the spoon, the previous mouthful spilled over with the new helping all onto my bib.

Thankfully, Mommy returned shortly. No need to tell her the trouble of handing a four year old a spoon and free reign. My face and bib did all the talking for me.

As a result, I have been spared another feeding disaster.

So, I leave this warning to infants with older siblings. Beware. If your mommy hands the spoon to them, well, hold on to your hats, it's gonna be a bumpy ride. Better yet, just scream. It'll save you the embarassment of having your picture taken and having it posted for the world to see.

ha! So funny! There are days though, where, if she got any in there at all...well, that's one less thing to do! Sometimes I think it's worth the price paid later, haha!! Fun for them, anyways! : )
