The Unsupervised

Buoyed by Joey's recent developing spoon abilities, I was sitting next to him while he was eating dinner, but not watching him. In fact I was reading blogs. When I turned to check on his progress I noticed that instead of his dinner, he had decided to use his spoon to consume all of his ketchup.

Henry LOVES ketchup! He eats his with a spoon too. You just have to sit back and be proud of the fine mototr skills he is developing. And according to one of our past presidents, ketchup is a vegetable, anyway!

That's funny..Good thing that was all it was though!
That would have been bad if it was something worse....and you were sitting right beside him...
it only gets better with another child!

Nice! Kathryn doesn't even bother using a spoon when it comes to ketchup...she's a dip the fingers then suck it off kinda gal. Until. it's. gone. True story. I don't even bother to keep score with the kids...I'm sure they'd have a lot more points than I do...

Umm. I'm with Kristen. If you keep points, you'll lose your mind. And your motivation.

We go through a bottle of ketchup in about a week around here. only Judah calls it "deeeep??"

haha. I laughed out loud. We haven't even attempted ketchup yet. Just trying to tackle rice and pasta which are sooo messy. :)
