Rice and Beans

 Who would have guessed that something as simple as dry rice and beans would keep these two still and engrossed for 45 minutes! No kidding.

They both are fascinated with the use of spoons but have yet to master that particular skill so they were excited to have some practice.

Near the end, as expected, Jack put the spoon down and started dumping and flinging  rice and beans on the floor. What I didn't expect was that Charlie responded to this by calmly picking up all the rice and beans that he could and put them back into his bowl. I was quite surprised but didn't complain.

I guess all that positive reinforcement everytime he puts things away is paying off!
