Dad tip #81: Beware the baby with ninja-like reflexes and guile

Tonight's advice will be in the form of a haiku:
I'll open my mouth
To make you think I want food
Ha ha! Got the spoon!
The haiku basically says it all. Though our baby is a mere seven months old, he's developed the ability to strategize ways to get ahold of the spoon. He'll open his mouth as if he wants a mouth full of food and then when you're in as close you can get without actually inserting the spoon in his mouth -- SHAZAM! -- like lightening his hand flashes out and he's got a surprisingly powerful grip on the spoon and there's mush all over his hands.

So the advice tonight is that you too must develop ninja-like reflexes. Work on that.
