My Atypical Two Year Old and His Not So Messy Face

by Erin L. on August 4, 2011

Did we really get so lucky?  No rain and not too terribly hot the night we decided to make S’mores?  Woohoo! We put the baby to bed and turned on the grill.  We were all ready for an oooey, gooey treat.

I am pretty sure that S’mores are one of the messiest things you can eat.  At least they are when I eat them.  However, in trying to capture the perfect messy face of my two year old eating the delightful treats, I found myself fighting with him to STOP USING HIS NAPKIN!  It was pretty humorous.

He doesn’t like to be sticky, messy or “yucky!”  So we kept the Wet Wipes on hand as we ate the utter deliciousness. I, on the other hand, have no issue with a little mess.  And a mess I made…

I’d never made S’mores on the grill before but they ended up being quite perfect.  Too bad the mosquitoes cut our outside treat short. But they didn’t stop us from having fun inside.

My little man was certainly excited about our new discovery.  His final verdict?  “Yummy in the Tummy!”
(Don’t believe me about Bug not getting messy? Check our quick video. Oh, and yes, I am highly embarrassed that I didn’t shut the door to my laundry room or pantry.  Awesome.)
