Drinking the fingerbowl

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

When you're introducing your little darling to the idea of drinking from a proper grown-up glass, and she has a lovely time dabbling the water to the consistency of soup with her meal-smeared fingers, and then she lifts it to her mouth, do you...

let her drink... we're baby-led, right?
try faintly to discourage her - "No, darling, that's not nice!"
seize the glass with a shriek of disgust?

Fortunatly we seem to be moving away from the all the food must go in the cup stage, and I do draw the line at fingers in my cup. In the pub the other week he did fish all the ice out of my drink and eat it though...

Guilty of saying "it's not a fingerbowl..." and replacing the water. You mean this goes on for years??! I better just let her get on with it then, hadn't I?
