when im cooking i cook it quickly and then go upstairs watch tv or bring the laptop and come on here. Not anymore though you will get used to it. I let himself clear the stuff away. Leave it a few mins then clear all the left overs in the bin
Its really difficult - i have 2 under 3s so i really need to be at the table with them encouraging them to eat & not throw the food all round the place. At the start i used to have some ironing on the go while i cooked to keep me occupied but its ok now & i've got used with it. While they have their dinner i sit down with them & have a cuppa. The hardest part is when my one & a half year old wants to feed me There's been more than one occasion when i've had to let him put food in my mouth then on the sly i take it out again lol. All leftovers have to go straight in the bin too - they're just too tempting to sit about!
It does get easier though, good luck x
