So Dan and I are having a really hard time right now. Daigen seems to think that he is mentally mature, but he seems to forget that even though he is in 2T clothing and size 5 diapers and shoes that he is NOT old enough to feed himself applesauce, he is only 17 months!!! We on the other hand have a hard time letting him feed himself because we both HATE messes. So this was our idea of letting hime feed himself applesauce. Needless to say, he did not even eat a bite of eat, he played with it and tried to dump into his empty shampoo bottle, but it kept him occupied for about a half hour. He is ALL boy and into everything. We have our pantry "wired" shut, but last night he was screaming to get into it, so Daddy being the softy that he is let him play in it. In less than 10 minutes the kid had it demolished. He had opened a bag of hot chocolate and was "rubbing" it everywhere. He has been alot of fun, but boy things better change before baby arrives!!!! :) Or WE are in BIG TROUBLE!!!!!
