      Haha, I know – think it mat only get worse from what I’m hearing! At least now I can sneak food in her mouth and she forgets she was having a strop – I’m sure she won’t be that easily tricked in a few more months! Thanks for hosting #TheList x

    It is like you are in my head. It always goes from – yes she loves this … to oh no she is spitting it at me! and we have learned to keep the dog away during mealtimes – he come back in for the cleanup!

      I so need to start keeping our dog away – he really has cottoned onto the fact that if he hovers by her she will drop her hand for a lick every now and again – ew! Definitely useful for the clean up though! Saves me so much time ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m glad my baby isn’t the only one who shakes his head from side to side when eating. It’s like he’s saying “NO, NO, NO get this food away from me!” #maternitymondays

    You must be a mind reader! I swear I had the exact same thoughts when I started to wean Tin Box Tot. I’ll probably have them all again in a few weeks when I start with Tin Box Baby! Thanks for making me giggle #materitymondays

    Ha ha! Love this. My little girl is now 17 months and meal times are slightly less messy, but I remember those early days well!

      Yes I’m looking forward to those days – although I’m sure it comes with a whole host of other problems. I’m learning that with every milestone there’s a new challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚
