When I was a new mom, everything had to be perfect. Now, as a Grandma, I think the mess is more fun.

To spoon or not to spoon?  That is the question.

Whether tis nobler, in the mind, to suffer the pain of learning this mysterious convention or to oppose it and end this hunger.

To eat:  To finally eat!

Ah, this thing; a spoon?  While full of intrigue, as a vessel, it fails;  Incapable of delivering even the smallest morsel to its destination.  Precious cargo lost all along the way.  Determined, I journey on.  Yet, try and try again, this tool seems unworthy of carrying even the smallest of loads.

There must be an easier way!

Successful delivery to the targeted destination.

Seems but a battle; a waste of precious time.

The warrior spirit, in me, has waned.  I’ve grown tired and weak with hunger.

IMG_7484Perchance, this battle will surface another day.

For today, the hand has won!
