Today I am partnering with Happy Family products to bring you this sponsored post about the humorous feeding moments we all go through with our children. You know those times, when you start off with a clean baby and one tiny cup of food later that baby is covered in green sticky mess? When my girls were little, they did it all. And now that I am an old lady and grandmother to all these little boys, I am getting to once again take part in the "fun" of feeding time.
Feeding time now also includes my grandson Julius who happened to be here visiting when he first began to eat solids. And that was a new adventure! Since Anthony is older we didn't have baby spoons or even a bib for the little guy. But even like that we decided it was time to feed him some apples and bananas. He wasn't happy and the concept of that spoon with the "suspicious" stuff on it, did not appeal to him at all. It was after much poking and prodding with the spoon on tightly closed lips that he finally realized the stuff on the spoon was sweet and kind of good. Finally he opened his mouth. It was only a few spoonfuls and he probably didn't even really get full that first time, but it took us about thirty minutes to make this happen. I'm happy that I got to be part of it and I am super happy that I got to take pictures of it. These are the important moments that we get to spend with our kids and grand kids so even if at that moment you feel like you want to pull your hair out in frustration, later on you will remember it fondly.
