TWO SENSE TUESDAYS #23...Messy eater

Being a new mother I seem to get a lot of advice, which can be helpful, but is also very frustrating when it's from people who are insistent that their way is the BEST way. I also get advice (because I'm an adoptive mother) from those who think that my son is just a stand-in until I get "the real thing."

Each week I will post a new question. I'd love it if you'd play along and offer us new mothers your pearls of wisdom.


When your kids were little did they blow raspberries while eating? If so, did you ignore it, curb it or somehow stop it?

R does that! She has only been eating cereal a few weeks, so we still think it is cute!

I wouldn' worry about it at this point. I think it is just a sign he is happy!

Awe, I think it's a phase for children. Both of my kids did that for awhile. Usually, you'll get a little irritated after while and they pick up on that and find another way to get your attention. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Too soon, it'll change and he'll be a big boy. :)Now we're dealing with my son throwing food on the floor. lol

We say "no spitting" in a firm voice. If he continues, I turn him away from the table for a few seconds. He hasn't done it in a while.
