Do you too have a spaghetti loving, pasta slurping, sauce spreading little one? I have been there and back and now I'm here to share with you what I learned. Read on Moms for tips from the front lines...
But first... before you check out my spaghetti lover CHECK OUT THIS GUY!
He's cute right?
TIP 1: REMOVE THE SHIRT... IT IS WORTH THE BATTLE
TIP #2: HIDE THE VEGGIES
Spaghetti is the perfect meal to get in some of those vegetables your kids won't otherwise touch and if you are using a meat sauce, they will likely never know. Mushrooms and tomatoes that were near their death went in last night's batch. When asked "What is this?" always respond with "sauce".
TIP #3: PAPER PLATES ARE YOUR FRIEND (AND BIODEGRADABLE)
TIP #4: JUST KEEP THE WIPES ON THE TABLE
No not those little thin squares you've been trying to get away with and wasting your time.. the real deal Huggies® New and Improved with Triple Clean Layers. Even though the Spaghetti lover will try to use umpteen of them - he'll really only need one. Sensitive skin? Got you covered there too. Huggies simply clean wipes are gentle enough for baby's skin and unscented.
TIP #5: LET THEM MAKE A MESS
Who cares really? It's easy to clean up, so why not have some fun? Not just on spaghetti night but in everything you do! Check out this video for a little inspiration.
