Is it wrong to laugh when your child turns her dinner into facial hair?
Nope. Enjoy them while you can and don’t get hung up on rules. Years from now she’ll remember you laughed with her.
Remember the Pippi Longstocking wannabes who made spaghetti beards? I think appreciating the creativity once is OK, but the second time, a reminder about manners and not playing with food is in order. Laura is old enough to understand the difference between once for spontaneity and twice is an attention ploy. Momma G
Thanks for reminding me of Pippi. I remember cutting the spaghetti with scissors as long strands hung from our mouths and also trying to talk with a mouth full of noodles. We had so much fun. The memory makes me more comfortable with letting Laura play a tiny bit with her food.
Ha! No way, laugh it up.
