Last week, on a night when Mark was out of town, I had a friend coming for dinner. She was minutes from arriving and the one thing that I really wanted to get done before she came was vacuuming the basement.
That morning Austin had been snacking on fruity cheerios while I was doing other housework and he had not only spilled some, but also stepped on them. There were little crumbs everywhere!
I was feeding Mia dinner and Austin came over and started playing with her and her highchair toy. I decided that since she was distracted I could run downstairs and quickly get the vacuuming done. I put her bowl of cereal on the table, away from her highchair, and retreated downstairs.
I was down there about 4 minutes. When I turned off the vacuum and headed upstairs, Austin was on his way down. He looked at me and said, "I help Mia eat cereal!" He showed me that he had some on his finger that he wanted wiped off.
I came upstairs to find Mia in the above state. She gave me a "Is this what you intended?" look.
Thankfully she was probably so stunned at his attempts to feed her that she did not make a mess of the bowl that he left on her tray. I couldn't help but laugh as I grabbed the camera.
He certainly is my little helper!
