Chad is the best Dad a family could wish for, and he is very involved in every aspect of parenting the babies. The one thing he prefers to avoid is food-related messes. And you can imagine with two toddlers, we have a lot of those.
So, to spare Chad from having to witness the gigantic mess that comes from letting the kids experiment with feeding themselves with a spoon, I've started giving the kids their own spoons and their own cups of applesauce at the end of lunchtime to "practice" with. This way, the mess is all cleaned up and gone before Dad gets home, but they also get their spoon "practice" time in too.
Here are some photos of my messy babies with their applesauce and spoons:

Have a great Friday everyone!
