The Ultimate Slob

Meet Joe, sometimes known in our house as "The Ultimate Slob", or "Jaba the Joe". If you've ever had the pleasure of sharing a meal or snack with him, you've probably witnessed his unique eating habits. Typically it goes something like this: kicks his feet up, puts food in mouth, moves it around a bit, spits it out, picks up another piece of food, just when it hits his tongue, decides he'd like a sip of drink, spits food out, takes a sip...and more of the same.

Some of that spit out food lands on his tray, most of it lands on his shirt.

I told you he likes to kick his feet up!

He also loves to pick up the spit out food and either throw it on the floor or stash it in the corners of his chair. Here he is dropping his chewed up orange on his leg. He literally dropped it on his leg pushed it down his leg saying "Wheeeee!".

And here's what I'm left with - a bunch of half-eaten oranges and granola bar remnants. Along with a very messy floor. And, yes, in case you're wondering...the second I get him down from his seat he's diving into that food on the floor for Round 2.

Are you completely grossed out yet?! I am! Everyday! But, he does it with such grace and at only 18 months he says "More....Peeeese..." in the sweetest little voice. I guess I'll keep him. : ) I just hope he cleans up his act before he starts dating!

And then there's Maggie, who is nice and neat....as long as she's allowed to eat from the margarita salt bowl.
