My five-year-old son is the messiest eater of the family. My two daughters are pretty good but Caiden, he leaves something to be desired. Is it just a boy thing? I don’t know.

I became fully aware of WHAT he eats like the other day. I took the kids to see the Hurricanes. It happened to be Rod Brind’Amour night. Now THAT was a HOCKEY game!!!

Anyway, I started to watch him eat popcorn. He shoved a whole handful in his mouth, oblivious to the popcorn flying out each side. I mean it was like an Orville Redenbacher hail storm!!! There were kernels sitting in the folds of his shirt, his pants, his seat and all around the floor. I should just attach a feed bag to the child! It’s the same thing at home. He has about a foot and a half drop zone all around him. At dinnertime, he’s the dog’s VIP!

Then it hit me. Caiden eats like a wood chipper! Think about it. Most of the wood/food goes in the front but a portion of it comes shooting out the side! He should be the new face of John Deere!
