Silly Monkey Stories: The Best Kind of Mess

I am lucky in that our children rarely make messes, aside from spreading toys all over the house.  The one exception is when they are eating, especially when they are eating something they enjoy.  The more they like it, the messier their faces and hands get . . . or so it seems to me.  In my opinion, those are the best kinds of messes that I don't mind cleaning up (most of the time).

Below you will find some photos from my archives.  I did not have to dig too hard to find some photos of a few happy, but messy faces.  These are the results of a first Fudgsicle, a fruit pizza, and some frosted Christmas cupcakes . . .

  1. aww cute! at least it looks like they are having fun!

  2. I love pictures like these. And I can't judge. Sometimes if I enjoy my food a little too much, I can look the same way!

  3. My granddaughter just started eating baby food vegetables and she always ends up with a face full of food. Of course, I have plenty pictures to document this because it is so cute!
