I have fond childhood memories of jam and cheese sandwiches which my mom lovingly packed for my school lunches. I have continued the tradition, mostly because I like them. But as it turns out, Nicky really likes the jam most of all.
When I first started making the sandwiches for him I folded a slice in half, did the jam and cheese and sliced it into segments. Nicky would try different ways of eating it. Sometimes he would open it up and take the cheese out and lick the jam. I guess those would be the times where he’d had too many biccy’s. (By the way no biccy’s the past week! Just crunchies…)
One time we went to the Wimpy he wanted the jam sample. I gave it to him and he played with it but I didn’t click that he actually wanted to eat the stuff.
Next time I got the message and he had jam on his toast.
This last time we went even further and he actually got a knife and spread it on himself. This was lots of fun for Nicky.
At first I held the jam for him but by the end he was spreading it himself quite capably. My big boy.
Afterwards he zoomed in for a kiss and to be honest I wasn’t keen with those jam sticky fingers and face! But how could I resist that cute little boy.
I guess now we know. Nicky likes jam. He likes to spread it, lick it and taste it. I see lots of sticky fingers in our future.
