GROWN-UP AMAIA

Amaia is starting to observe the more grown-up people around her and has a very definite opinion about how she wants to behave and be treated. Bibs are definitely a no-no. Grown-ups don't wear bibs. The cup with a lid has also been discarded in favour of a big-girl glass. But yesterday lunch took the biscuit. We gave her a plate of garlic lentil soup and a spoon. After the soup we were having a second course so a plate, knife and fork were also at her place. Appalled that she should be handed a spoon, which she considers a baby implement, she threw it to one side in disgust and proceeded to eat the entire bowl of soup using a fork!
