Day 1048 - What the Fork?!?

Andrew has picked up an annoying habit during his meals: he bends his plastic utensils. Although I am extremely proud that my son has amassed enough strength in his toddler arms and hands to buckle BPA free forks and spoons, it has made meal time much more difficult.

We tried giving Andrew metal utensils, but he just ended up chiseling the dining room table with a pseudo-pointilism attempt at Sunday in the Park with George. So until Andrew understands his metal forks are not to be used for wood shop, plastic utensils will continue to be used in the Ichikawa house.

All of these bent forks, spoons, knives, and spatulas has also taken a toll on Andrew. He is slowly realizing that he is unable to eat his food when he bends his utensils. Here is a video showing Andrew's growing frustration with his bent fork.
