I Do Not Think That Means What You Think It Means

The other day I let The Baby Girl eat black beans. They were well received, and enthusiastically consumed. She really got into her food and her food got all over her. So I took pictures.

Seeing as how we are in the digital camera age and even the smallest of children know that you can see photographs right on the back of the camera, The Middle Girl immediately demanded to review the shots I'd taken saying, "I want to see the dirty pictures!"


Warning: Black beans take a lot of scrubbing to remove from small children and tend to leave ring around the tub.


What a darling little fattikins. She's adorable. Oh, and love the gate too. Very artistic, which I expected.

That reminds me of a logo from long ago when I was just a tiny kid--probably around 1965 or '66. The Birmingham Yellow Pages used to have an ad of some sort, and the clip art the company used was a baby playing in dirt. Every year I begged my mother to find the dirty baby in the phone book.

You sure have a cutiepie there.

What a cutie! I have a very simular picture of Rebecca coated in black berries.

Beans, beans, good for me,
good for you and good for Bea!

That picture just squeezed my heart - she's so precious. Serve her some rice (complementary protein source) and you'd have a budding vegetarian.

Oh, she is so sweet! Love the dirty bean action!

I guess we're just uptight. When Jay starts spitting out his food, we wipe him up asap. Might just be laziness, though- the messier he gets, the more gets smeared around the chair, the carpet, his clothes, etc. If we contain it at the source, our slovenly housekeeping isn't as obvious or as serious a fault!

Anyway, you're brave. I'm sure Bea LOVES it. You can tell from the photo!

So cute! She looks like she's having a wonderful time. :) I know what you mean about the digital camera, too ... my nieces and nephews all demand to look at the picture on the back.
