Spill King

My son seems to be having some issues today with spilling things.  This morning, I took him to my critique meeting at Panera Bread and got him a smoothie.  Somehow, half of the smoothie ended up on the floor.

"Naughty smoothie!" he said, looking at the mess on the floor and on his jacket.  I cleaned it up and took the boy and his smoothie-covered jacket home.

At lunchtime, I gave the boy some yogurt.  A short while later, he walked over to me.  "Mama, I need a paper towel."

"Why, Bubba?"

"I had a little spill."  He pointed at his shirt and pants.  They were covered in yogurt.

I had him change, and threw his dirty clothes in the wash. 

Then he drank his juice.  And guess what?  He had another little spill.

"Bubba, what seems to be the problem, today?"  I asked.

"I don't know, Mama.  Nothing wants to be eaten, and it's running away from my mouth!"

I hate when that happens!

  2. I had a friend whose son went through a spill phase. The third time he spilled his milk during a single meal, I think she lost it. The spilling ended after a while. Hang in there!

    Love,

    1. Maybe he's going through a growth spurt and his hands and mouth are a little uncoordinated.

  3. Bubba's been having one of those days. I feel the same way with coffee, and it always happens whenever I have a crisp white office long sleeved blouse on. The shirt seems to scare the coffee away. I'm so glad to be back. I missed your stories. :)

    1. If I was a drink, I think I'd try to run, too!

  7. LOL, if all that food is sentient enough to want to run away, no wonder they're trying to--simply staying to be eaten would be suicide!

  9. I like: 'it's running away from my mouth' (food and drink). I know what he means, and it usually happens when I'm doing something else at the same time. . .

    His wit sometimes exceeds his age!

    1. It would be cute. It's just a bit tough to find a publisher for this stuff.
