Messy baby

 

There’s an eating fast, and then there’s fast eating. So fast and furious that the whole escapade is a total mess. And for youngun’s, that might just be a good sign according to Today’s article “Why a messy baby may be brainier”…

  • “Next time your baby mashes his bananas, apple sauce AND carrots all together — not to mention all over his hands, hair and the high chair—don’t fret about the mess. Your little one just may be getting smarter in the process…Lynn Hall, now a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, told TODAY Moms in an email. ’The easiest way to know which things are made of the same stuff is to touch them, smell them or eat them. And if kids are in a situation where they have a lot of practice touching and eating non-solid foods, then they know it’s okay to get in there and figure it out.’”

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to convince my wife that this process carries on well into middle aged adulthood…
