Potato Potato Everywhere

Today was Constance's second day of homemade sweet potatoes. She took two bites and would not open her mouth for anymore. I got the "brilliant" idea to let her see the contents of the bowl. I tilted it her way and she trustingly put her hand in and got the orange veggie all over her hand. At first she kind of moved her hand some, a little unsure of this weird and gooey texture all over it. However it did not take her very long to decide that mommy must have given her a good thing. She hit the bottom of the bowl several times, spraying herself, me, her Bumbo and the floor with sweet potato. Given time she might have put her hands on her head but this time she left it alone and just had it spread all over her legs and hands. It was great! I put the bowl down to go start her bath water and when I came back she was reaching for the bowl, then successfully picked it up and flung it around a couple of times. I would have to say that this may have been the best day of her life thus far!


  1. Wow--what a great idea, mommy! Constance now knows that food is okay for eating, but better than that, fun to play with!

  2. I missed it! I was taking a siesta hoping to help get me over the family's first cold and I missed it. You wrote about it so well though and I can just picture her having a field day with the orange veggie. I can't wait to give her spaghetti and to take pictures of her dumping everywhere! That will be great. Greatest day of her life...probably.

  3. You have such a great attitude about these things! I love it! You're an awesome mommy!
