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.

HERE IS THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:

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.
