snack

My little man is not one to sit still, he likes to be on the move and not tied down. This makes most mealtimes (and shopping in the stroller) a bit of a battle. Breakfast and dinner are fine with company close by he seems quite contented, but lunch and snack times are a no go. So I decided to stop fighting it and come up with another solution. This week I made a snack mat, a vintage sheet that I was finally brave enough to cut into formed the top and a towel looking past it's best became the batting. I had some striped denim fabric that I thrifted a while ago for the bottom layer an old pair of jeans for the border. It's a big hit! He seems to love sitting down on it with a little bowl of snacks and stays sitting on it till finished (but not when mum is trying to take a photo). Now just to make a few more as I imagine this one will get dirty quickly enough!
