Two birds with one stone - so to speak.

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.

Two birds with one stone - so to speak.

Yay to you getting more greens in. We are just entering that stage now. The whining while I am in the kitchen has been going on for a while now. That is one of the reasons why I cook in the evenings for the next day. I will try out this method at the weekend.

cheers,
Lor

reminds me of a little tip I picked up from Granny Anne (mum of one of my friends). When their 18m old played up at nearly dinner time, they used to make 'soup'. This involved a wooden spoon, and various dried lentils/pasta stirred round in the bowl.
I'm not sure if my dd wouldn't try to eat the pasta though... :?

We did the imaginary soup thing for a while (no actual foodstuffs, just corks & bottle caps etc..)and it was great. Now, however, Imaginary Soup Just Will NOT Do. The whinging seems to have something to do with feeling left out down at ground level which is why the high chair is the piece de reistance.

She is UP, ye see - and feels involved in the cooking. I tell her what I'm doing and she pulls fridge magnets off the fridge door and eats them between the veg batons.

Ahhh, yes, the leg limpet thing. We've just started putting IzzyMouse on a chair, probably perilously close to the oven but she seems to have a reasonable sense of self-preservation (although not going to let her loose with a machete just yet) so I think we're alright. If she's having a particularly fragile or accident prone day I put her in a back carry so she can peer over my shoulder at what's going on.

She doesn't eat brocolli at the same time, though. Which is a shame, cos she ate bucket loads of the stuff to start with.

Anyone seen one of those insanely expensive kitchenpod thingies? I'd ask for one for Christmas but getting round our kitchen is an obstacle course as it is without anything else in the way. High chair not quite high enough for izzymouse to see what's going on.

Googled Kitchenpod but just found solutions for installing cooking facilities into Primary Schools - assuming that this is not what you meant?! Sounds fun though, but I also have insanely tiny kitchen. (The veg box lives on top of the bin - much to everyone's annoyance but there is nowhere else for it to go!)

Darn it, will see what else it could be called.

Aha! This isn't the model I meant, but it does the same thing I think.

see what I mean about the price? Especially considering it looks like an oversized bolsar wood model of seaplane...

No, found it, got the pod bit right but apparently it's a pod for fun...
