Kid + Chocolate Cake = Messy Face

Looking Like the Cat that Just Ate the Bird

Just two days ago I wrote about instilling a dislike of chocolate in kids by giving them unsweetened chocolate at first. If you'll recall, I lamented that we hadn't thought of this in time with Anthony, and so he likes chocolate. We limit it, at least, to special occasions.

So yesterday's special occasion was that a slice of chocolate cake would go bad if someone didn't eat it soon. (So much for my credibility!)

Kids can be much better about eating then adults: they stop when they're no longer hungry. He didn't finish the cake before getting full, so he left it. (And no, I didn't finish it off for him, despite my desire to have done so 🙂 )

You call THAT a messy face? Where’s the banana rubbed into his hair? The biter biscuit paste plastered from neck to ears? Sweet pea puree ground into the eyebrows and partially gluing the eyes shut? Bah. 8 month old Josh scoffs at his big cousin’s “messy face”.

I have to agree. I’m afraid that young Anthony is a beginner in the messy face from eating cake stakes. I’ll have to dig out some of my pictures from when my daughters were in highchairs and let loose on chocolate cake. There’s more chocolate than skin in the pictures. Now, that’s the way to enjoy a slice of cake! 🙂
