Three times a day on average, malia has to endure this aggravating task. Let me just tell you....she HATES it. Need I say more? Well today, the second time around, I had pushed her away from the table to wipe her up, went to the kitchen to get the cloth, turned around to find her hiding behind the curtain. My little malia, you can run but you can't hide!! And thank you for wiping your dirty hands on my white curtains ;) I successfully wiped her up, much to her disapproval! Sorry malia, until you learn to eat cleanly, you will be dealing with this for some time. It's for your own good....and ours!
