Food is apparently more tasty if mashed in water on the highchair tray first.:

oceanbaby, it sounds like at least some food is getting into the mouth after the mashing. Here we just have art projects and cement making (rice cheese day old on carpet, nasty...).

Dog food + water = mud. Sort of. Or perhaps chunky fingerpaint, depending upon its application.

The toilet is actually a portal into another dimension............... a land of mystery that calls to be discovered.

Not just with toddlers, but also with babies:

A clean, fresh diaper, just changed, is conducive to poop.

The more time & effort you put in preparing a dish, the less appealing it is to toddler, and will be rejected.

Whatever's on mummy's plate tastes better.

Mashed food makes good facial masks.

Nice, clean clothes induces hard-to-get-out stains.

You ladies are sooo funny!!!

Did you know that Children speak and entirely different language than their parents....

for example......

Mom says: "Honey please don't do that"......Childs Translation: "Please Honey do it as often and as loudly as you'd like until your mother is absolutley insane!!!"

Mom Says: "No Sweethert you can not_____(fill in the blank):......CHild hears: "Sweetheart, I will let you do it if you ask 16 thousand times SCREAMING while adding a PLEASE or NOW on to the end!!!"
