Spaghetti night

At least once a week, Sean will ask if we can have spaghetti for dinner. Now you may be thinking, "Sounds like a kid... every kid likes spaghetti!" But the thing is, he doesn't. He ONLY likes Daddy's spaghetti, and I have to admit, IT... IS... THE... BEST!

We usually have to strip Sean down to just his underwear (please click here to see why), but always try to get him to use a fork. In his defense, why use a fork when you can shovel more into your mouth faster by using your hands?!? Well this week, Sean asked if he could use a fork and didn't start stripping down! I was literally stunned! I very willingly got him a fork, and nervously watched as he excitedly twisted the spaghetti around the fork and took a bite (all the while Mommy was thinking of new stain removal tricks for pasta sauce).

HE DID GREAT!!! He ate 2 1/2 plates of pasta and did not get one drop on his shirt! He was so proud of himself and I was so proud of him! When I asked him where he learned to eat spaghetti (thinking he'd say, "From you Mommy!"), he sweetly said, "From Special Agent Oso of course!"

Great. My kid is learning his table manners, not from his parents, but rather an animated stuffed bear. Mother of the year award - right here! ;-)
