I have always been the type of parent to not care if my child gets a little messy as long as they are having fun and staying safe. My husband, however, has a hard time when it comes to activities where the kids make a mess. He won't even feed Parker baby food because it makes too much of a mess for him, it's kind of funny. Oh, well more fun for me I say!
A little dialogue from a conversation we recently had during dinner. I was feeding Parker at the time of course.
Hubby: "So when will Parker learn to feed himself."
Me:(I proceed to let Parker take the spoon and put it in his mouth himself.)
Hubby: "I mean, when will he do it without being so messy."
Me: (I laugh and let out a sigh) He's a baby, probably not for awhile.
The paint in the mouth really freaked daddy out, lol!
The next two pictures remind me of the scene in "Finding Nemo" where the dad asks Nemo to not touch the boat. Daddy was telling Parker not to touch the wall, and wouldn't you know...he touches the wall.
You can just see that stubbornness in his eyes!
While the painting may never sell for a million dollars, it is priceless to me.
