When the food is ready and the table set, we put Bridger in his chair and quickly give him something to stuff into his mouth so we don't have to hear him yell for food. (he totally knows when it's time to eat and he's not very patient about it) We pray, Chad gets the things i forgot to put out like the ketchup or some other condiment he can't live without, and finally Chad and I start to eat. When we get to about our second bite, Bridger starts yelling and tries to coax us into giving him something off our plates. We give in and appease him. Third bite, He makes it known that he is not satisfied with whatever it was that we gave him and throws in on the ground. We scramble to give him something else so that we can enjoy OUR food. Mid fourth bite, he's still yelling and throwing so we decide to ignore him and try finish our dinner. I stuff as much food into my mouth as possible and then get Bridger out because his yelling drives me bonkers, and as I wash him up, Chad quickly wipes up the floor because as soon as Bridger is loose from his washing...he goes straight for all the food he had thrown on the floor earlier ("seconds"he was saving for later)We've just accepted that we won't be able to savor our meals like we use to for a very long time!
Last night as Chad was wiping up the floor like usual, Bridger grabbed a hand towel and started helping out...he pushed the towel all around just like Chad. Then he turned around to strike this pose.
Yep, my little cleaner...Soon I'll have him dusting base boards and cleaning toilets!
