This blog is not supposed to make me out to be anything more than what I am: imperfect and constantly learning. Even with two kids I stumble upon or discover or hear from a friend new ideas, tricks, or trades that make my day a little easier. I found such a trick, in the baby food aisle of Target (the nearest of which is over an hour from me here...sigh...), that taught my fine-motor-skills-challenged daughter how to hold food and feed herself. And now I will share such a find with you.
Baby Mum-Mums. Rice cake ovals that dissolve easily, are big enough to hold, don't break into big chokey pieces, and don't make a terrible mess.
Also, when I need a minute to get my act (and her dinner) together, BMM distracts her long enough to keep me from giving her something quick and not necessarily healthy.
