When it comes to meal time Niko has his ups and downs. Sometimes he gobbles everything up, and sometimes he whines through dinner or breakfast or lunch. Sometimes he’s pretty clean at the end, and sometimes it looks like he lost the world’s biggest food fight. On days like those, the days where food is everywhere, I do what I can to lessen the mess by scraping the spoon up his face, in an effort to remove the cereal or whatever the mush of the hour may be. And truth be told, this spoonful of face goo usually ends up back in his mouth. It’s a lovely bout of recycling, really.

Anyway, as Niko was eating his breakfast a couple of days ago and we were trudging through a slightly (oh, who am I kidding?) really, messy bout of cereal, Aunt Carolyn noticed my adept spoon maneuvering and couldn’t help but comment that I was performing the old Spoon Shave trick. Spoon shave trick?, I wondered. But really, when you give it an ounce of thought, it’s pretty self-explanatory. (See pics below for further explanation.)

Note: To the right of this post you can see Aunt Carolyn and Little N sitting on the grass, which as it turns out was Niko’s first time ever sitting on bare grass. And as far as we could tell he didn’t even swallow any bugs! Although, given some time I am sure anything could have been possible.
