It's a Bird, It's a Plane, No It's Sweet Potatoes!!

Yesterday afternoon I was feeding Cowpokette some sweet potatoes. We don't have a high chair, so I put her in her bouncy seat and feed her there. I put the bouncy seat up on the counter so I can stand and be the same height as her. I really need a high chair. She loves to eat. She gets all excited. But yesterday while I was feeding her I was also trying to talk to a customer service representative online. The customer service rep. told me to hold on. So, while I was holding I would feed Cowpokette. But then suddenly she came back to chat some more. So, I put the sweet potatoes down next to the bouncy seat and turned my back for about 1 minute. Then it happened. I heard the small jar hit the floor. The potatoes went everywhere. All over the floor. She was so proud of herself. She can sit straight up in her bouncy seat and reach over the sides and grab everything. I learned this yesterday. So, I cleaned up the floor and our cabinets while she laughed. Then I saw this. Yes, some how they sweet potatoes flew and hit our ceiling!! Can you believe that 1 Stage One jar of baby food could fly that high? We have 9 foot ceilings!! And there was a lot up there!! I had to get a ladder and a sponge and clean the ceiling. I was terrified to climb the ladder!!Then there is the innocent little girl, "What did I do that? I haven't seen any sweet potatoes. Not me!! I would never do such a thing as to toss the jar on the floor and make a huge mess!" She plays the innocent card well don't ya think? But I did have to laugh. I mean how often do you have sweet potatoes on your ceiling?

That's what you get for teasing her with a few bites and then stopping to talk to someone else! lol

Kids do the darndest things. I think it's all a conspiracy. They plan it all and do it on purpose.

I can honestly say, this is the first time I've heard this one. My five boys have all had their fair share of pullings things on us, but we've never had baby food on the ceiling!! lol Have fun!

Food fighting starts earlier and earlier.

I can't find where to email you at, so I'll post here. You can request mail pick-up at your house if you have a package and then you don't have to go to the post office. I love it.
