we have a little girl who has always loved to eat cereal.
she is not, however, adept with a spoon. so most mornings when she has cereal, it’s dry and in a bowl.
but i REALLY want her to learn how to use a spoon.
so i’m embracing the mess and late last week i let her enjoy some cereal WITH MILK!
she was pretty elated.
and yes, she did make a huge mess.
i needed to chant “embrace the mess. embrace the mess. embrace the mess” a few times.
but those smiles? the delight in her eyes? SO worth it!
