  1. Oh ha ha ha! Bless you, I suddenly feel as if my child might actually make it to adulthood.

  2. I believe ANYTHING left on the floor will be eaten the next day (or week?) by the toddler, refined sugar or not!

  3. Love it! My 1 year old will usually eat anything- this includes having a meltdown when I won’t share my food with him promptly after I finish feeding him lunch. And the Cheerios- I swear he throws half of them on the floor for purpose of eating them later during playtime.

    • I feel like I have to share something…. When I was about 8-9 years old, I liked eating Bake Rolls off the floor. I don’t know why. As soon as my mom came back from the store, I would take them to my room, throw a handful on the floor and eat them off, pretending I was a dog. My mom even caught me in the act one day, stayed there looking at me silently for a moment, then proceeded to roll her eyes as she walk out my room and closed the door behind her.

    My baby ate a crayon today – I immediately thought of you and your blog. Loving your take on parenthood.

  5. Your writing never fails to make me laugh. Figured it was about time I transitioned from creepy lurking stalker to creepy lurking known reader.

  6. I wish my 11-month-old consumed as much as your child does in these charts. Our charts for finger foods right now are mostly “mushed on tray”, “dropped”, “touch to lips then put back on tray while laughing”, “stared at suspiciously”, and, finally “thrown away”.

    Unless it is a Gerber Puff. Or looks like a Gerber Puff. Then she’ll eat them all and excitedly sign “more” in and endless loop.

  7. Congratulations— I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Please check out my latest blog for more details! http://sincerelykaterz.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/this-labyrinth-i-roam/

  8. Truth! I’d have to add a chart for my daughter labeled “inedible.” For a time she was fond of eating rug threads the cat pulled up. Team effort!

    • I’m 99% sure my daughter also ate a rug thread a cat pulled up last night, based on the expressions on her face as I ran toward her yelling “WHAT DID YOU EAT?!”. By the time I got to her, it was gone, and she happily crawled away. ::sigh:: But the tasty mango chunks on her high chair tray? Squished, then thrown away.

  9. Hilarious!

  10. I’d add a category to “whatever you were eating”–at least 10% is forcefed back to me. He particularly likes shoving whole fruit in the vague direction of my mouth, or awkwardly tipping cups at my face. (My kid’s almost the exact same age.)
