One of our goals as parents is to help our children along the road to being independent people. So I wonder if this counts. While I was cleaning up the kitchen the other day, Adalyn crawled in, opened the pantry door, pulled down the box of Crispix, dumped a snack sized amount out, and ate it. She also made a big pile of crumbs which then trailed after her as she crawled away.
And just so you don't think I'm an awful Mom who does not feed her children, I will say that I did put some in a bowl for her, which she promptly dumped and crushed along with the other bits. You may at some point wonder why I would let her do this, obviously she was in full view since I took pictures. And in my defense I would say that there is a trade off for all things. If I wanted the dishes done, I needed to have her distracted and she seemed pretty happy in her own messy Crispix world. So the dishes got washed and shortly after that, the floors were vacuumed.
She's a fun girl, and so independent : / Oh well, if anyone in the house appreciated this new skill it was Possum, who got to clean up her mess.
