There is a lot of messiness involved with feeding a toddler.
Evelyn loves yogurt, and she also loves to feed herself. This means I frequently have a yogurt-covered Evelyn. Hair, clothes, arms, legs, even the floor and sometimes the walls. Not fun.
And speaking of yogurt, I was fairly upset when they switched from putting lids on the containers to the foil non-replaceable tops. Not cool yogurt companies, some of us like to use less than one cup at a time or to reuse our containers.
Except, then Steve came up with this novel idea:
It works GREAT. I just punched a little hole in the foil, cut a bendy straw and popped it through.
Evelyn still pulls the straw out and so there is a little mess, but it is much more contained. I love it.
Not to be outdone, I decided I was going to have my own awesome idea:
I used one of Evelyn’s stretchy headbands to hold Mikey’s pacifier in his mouth since he has so much trouble keeping it in.
Okay, so Steve’s idea was better, and this probably isn’t the greatest idea, but it did work for about 2 minutes, which was 2 more hand-free minutes that I wouldn’t have had before.
And every hand-free minute counts, let me tell you. This guy loves to nurse.
