...this is serious business...spoon and fork!
More than a week ago our little guy here started paying attention to proper use of utensils. So far, half of his food successfully made it to his mouth, a quarter of them fell to the floor, and some landed to our mouths and plates too. It's messy. Right now at his age it's mostly fun and a bit sad and scary too seeing him grow up a little more each day. I guess he's a toddler now. Tomorrow is his 21st month birthday and crazy as it sounds soon enough he'll be 21 years old. I guess it's okay to freak out. Like this biiiiiiig!!!!! So when you're freaking naturally you will load up on parenting books, especially toddler-phase books. I don't know, but still I feel that as a parent you are essentially powerless. Well at least after your kids reach the age of 13 or something like that. You give your child the best chance you can in life, but ultimately they are going to do what they want, and hopefully (oh God please) hopefully you have not screwed them up too badly. c",)
