Mama knows best. Her words may not sink in now but my advice would be to grin and accept her wisdom. It’s going to be a long time til we best her experience so when the opportunity to shove it in her face arises, we menacingly take it. Playing with food is an art form, a way that could have paid the bills. Table manners ruin lives! Way to restrict artistic freedom.
These artists understand making a happy plate. New mothers of the world, let your kids create!
