Monday night he was cranky when we got home. This has been the regular modus operandi since joining the toddler room. As I worried, he isn't getting enough sleep. So, until he gets used to this schedule, I am going to have to get used to a cranky boy. Sigh. Anyway, he was whining and crying before his snack and so I decided to give him the oatmeal and a spoon so he could feed himself. Suddenly, he was less cranky, so it totally worked. He loved feeding himself. He made a total mess, but you know, he was going to the bath next so who cares??? It made my sleepy, cranky boy less so for a few minutes so it was completely worth it. These are photos I snapped with my phone, as well as a little video.
Of course, the spoon is optional.
Yes, yes indeed. That's a clothing rack in my living room.
It's a long story we can talk about later. Ahem.
Don't miss those bits on the spoon, baby.
Of course, we'll miss the bits on your face.
In case you needed to see this part up close...
Eventually he resorted to picking up the bowl.
And, the little video.
