Lunch Clean-up Crew

As some of you may know I'm a bit obsessed when it comes keeping things clean. Having a baby has not curbed this. I have rules set up for "outside treats" which consist of cookies, crackers and anything that can melt. And in my house there is no such thing as an "inside treat" just "spoon-fed food" which consists of, well, everything. I will put anything and everything on a spoon and feed it to William even if the item is traditionally a finger-food no matter how old you are.

I've recently become aware that I could be doing more harm than good. The good, of course, being that I'm keeping things tidy for my own sanity. So I've relaxed my rules a bit and have allowed William to eat one meal a day with his fingers. This is usually lunch.

Today I let him have his first peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Those of you who are even more obsessed about following pediatric food guidelines than I am about cleaning are probably gasping because I'm giving him peanut butter before his first birthday. I decided three weeks until his first birthday probably wouldn't make that much difference so I threw caution to the wind and gave it a try. He loved it. But you can only imagine the resulting mess. What followed was this short video. At least William likes my clean-up tactics.
