Alert... Cheerio down!

What a sweet boy I have... truly! I don't know if it's an innate sense of neatness (not likely), a selfish desire to not loose something that is his, or a knowledge that food does not go on the floor (I pretend it's that one), but any time he looses a piece of food (this morning it was a single Cheerio) he starts in with the "uh oh"s... and doesn't stop until it has been retrieved and returned to him. It's pretty cute!

We have trained him that food doesn't get thrown on the floor, so it works for me!!

How can you teach this??? We started with a no tolerance policy right from the beginning... but if you are starting at an older age, explain the rule... then don't back down! Then again... maybe we just got an easy first kid. I'm really not experienced enough to give this sort of advice!
Regardless... it's really cute!

Sarah Beth does the same thing! It is nice not to have a huge mess to clean up after she eats. Except for when she tries to eat her muffins with a fork. Silly girl, but she insists.

How cute! I like the "uh-oh"s. I'm sure he's just a good kid! Someday he'll be grabbing them off the floor when Sweet Pea is eating!

i'm wondering how you taught your son not to throw food on the floor. We take ours out of his high chair and don't feed him again until later when he does, but it doesn't seem like much of a punishment, and now he basically just throws food when he wants to get down.

How did you go about teaching yours not to?
