Comments for Breakfast Hijinks

HarrietBreakfast Hijinks: 04/26/07

Today Ian needed to drive into Berkeley right after taking Sean to school. In order to get Ian out the door, I has get Sean to eat his breakfast quicker than he normally does. Unfortunately, Harriet had other plans.

Harriet discovered she can make Sean laugh by doing silly tricks with her baby spoon. She figured out the spoon on the nose trick back in January. Now she has added two more tricks that put Sean into laughing fits. Her first trick is to grab the bowl end of the spoon with her teeth (usually right after I've fed her a bite of something) and then twirl the handle end around. Her second trick is to beat out a rhythm of the handle while the bowl end is held between her teeth. This spoon-drum-solo had Sean and me laughing so hard this morning.

Sean ended up a little late to school because of the silliness at breakfast. Ian though got to Berkeley with plenty of time.
