Table manners 2


By some miracle of the fates, we’ve never had a lot of need to put a bib on the boy while feeding him. But now that he’s attempting to feed himself, we nearly have to hose him down in the yard.

Here’s something I’m not proud of: we don’t wash the removable cloth part of his highchair* nearly enough. We just don’t think about it unless there’s a vomit incident or some other event. One morning last week I was about to put the boy in the chair, bumped it and a swarm of fruit flies arose.

* we call the chair “Ol Sparky”

    We took the fabric off Mason’s chair and now use shower towels. Shake off and wash!

    Same goes with car seats when they start to eat and drink in the car….I was always amazed why my son’s car seat was free of crumbs…Then one time I decided to take the whole seat out and clean it entirely. There were remnants of a mouse nest in the compartment under the seat! Of course, we did live in the “country” at the time….Lesson #1: never get a car seat that has a big compartment underneath it…#2: check it and clean it whenever you can!

    I must mention the paté and humus and other such dishes have always seemed a bit baby-foody to me. == M
