I so often marvel at our little children.
Why is it that all their days are exciting and new and once you grow up you seem to resent the monotony that one has created? How come a child can eat a birthday cake with complete disregard to the way they look during or after, while I cannot get going until I have a fork, napkin, and some peace and quiet to enjoy it??
Our son had his first birthday and yes, he does seem to make a mess with every meal he gets, however, strangely enough, a quick clean up takes care of most of it.
Enjoy the simple things – eat with your hands, worry about the clean up later.
Count your blessings.
