same day

Yesterday morning Isaac was so cute and messy at breakfast, that I took pictures and put this together right away. This breakfast clean-up battle happens pretty much every other day. First, he reaches impressive states of messiness. Then complains about getting cleaned up. Then we strip him at the table because I don’t want yogurt (or oatmeal, this happens with oatmeal too) all over the place. And the stripping makes him cry and cry until he has a clean shirt on and is released to play trains.

And that is the repeating cycle of messy breakfasts. Now forever logged in the Rice Family Albums. ;)

And…Chuck, that close up is for you. ;)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    Adorable! Makes me feel better knowing this battle is shared by moms everywhere! Though for me it is every meal – just the sight of the wash cloth sends him into a screaming fit! Before he could say “no”, he would say it as “ow.” Nothing like washing up your child (or diapering, changing clothes, brushing hair…..really anything body related) while he screams “Ow! Ow! Ow!” at the top of his lungs!

    And this is why we’ve resorted to no shirts at the table, haha. But only at home, of course. Isaac looks so big in that last picture!

    Isaac looks so old! I feel like he has hit a new stage of little boy-dom in my mind after seeing that picture.
