Button hit an independent streak a little earlier than Sprout did. He refuses to be fed.
And he refuses to be coached on how to use forks or spoons.
How’s that going? He’s getting more frequent baths.
But there is the benefit of eating our own meals without having to grow an extra arm to feed him.
If he would let us feed him, it wouldn’t be as messy. But he can do it himself. Pretty much.
I try to remind myself that giving up control isn’t always a terrible idea. Just because I can do something better doesn’t mean I need to be the one to do it.
And it’s a good reminder about not demanding perfection from someone who’s learning. He may have some difficulty with it all, but he gets a little better with every meal.
