A Moment in Parenting: Spoon

Kiddo: Sticks hand in yogurt, pulls out blueberry, eats it. His expression turns to one of great distress as he holds out yogurty fingers, "Wipe it off? Wipe it off!"

Me: "Wipe my fingers, please?"

Kiddo: "Wipe fingers pleeeease?!"

Me: Wipes fingers. Hands Kiddo a spoon (the colour of his choosing, naturally), "Use the spoon and your fingers won't get sticky."

Kiddo: Picks up spoon, takes one successful bite of yogurt...drops spoon, reaches hand into yogurt, grabs blueberry..."Wipe it off. Wipe it off!!"

Me: Deep breath...

Repeat
