I bought a bib several months ago, and never used it...until today anyway.
I was in the mood for spaghetti, stopped by Fazoli's, and thought this would be a great opportunity to finally put my bib to use; so I ordered it to go.
After I got home I got dressed into something I wouldn't mind getting stained, laid a small blanket down in the floor, filled my baba with some apple juice, put my bib on, and finally dug in!
...I'd always been curious to try eating bare handed, and this was definitely an interesting experience. It was kinda awkward and fun at the same time.(and very messy) On one hand, I was just trying to let go and get into the roll of being a toddler. On the other hand, I kept falling back on old eating habits. If some spaghetti fell out of my hand, my body would just act on reflex and try to catch it or make it fall back on the plate.
I'll probably do it again sometime. I'd think it would get less awkward if I got more used to it...
Does anyone else have any similar experiences?
