The hubs and I aren't super neat freaks, but we certainly try to keep our kid clean. I really hate to see a baby or toddler running around with a dirty face. I mean, come on. It's just lazy parenting. But it's fun stuff when you let them get messy deliberately, which is what we decided to do last night.
Yeah, spaghetti night!
G'd had spaghetti once before at a restaurant, and since that went over well, we decided to put a pile in front of him and let him go at it.
He was pretty cautious at first, looking at us to make sure this was all okay.
He did quickly try to stuff some in his mouth.
When some strands dropped on him, he started whining about it. The kiddo does not like to get dirty. The hubs rescued him by picking off the spaghetti.
yesssss, I shall eat you.
I love the next picture, especially his face and crossed feet. My kid has seriously big feet. Click on it to make it bigger and you can better see his adorable expression. Everyone keeps bugging me to cut his hair, but if I did, he would lose those curls. I can't bear the thought right now!
Add a fork into the mix, and suddenly it's play time!
Oh, the joys of messiness when you're a kid. Next time, we'll wipe him down before plopping him into the bath. Spaghetti sauce in bath water kinda looks like barf. So not pleasant.
