A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

The kitchen of their flat looked like a disaster area, which was the case more often than not these days. Meriel was learning to feed herself, although as far as Ianto could tell, she was more interested in throwing oatmeal everywhere than actually eating it. That would no doubt change when she finished playing with her food and realised there wasn’t any left, while she was still hungry. Then he predicted loud wails and floods of tears. Their daughter couldn’t talk yet, but she was very good at making her displeasure known. It was a good thing they didn’t have neighbours.

Under the circumstances, Ianto was relieved both he and Jack were at home today, because that meant Jack could take charge of supplying food to the bottomless pit that was their daughter while Ianto dealt with the mess she’d created by picking up her dish and upending it over the edge of her highchair. He wasn’t sure whether he was glad she’d managed to miss the floor or not. Floors could be mopped…

Once again, Ianto blessed Jack for the enormous shower he’d had fitted in their flat. There was plenty of room in it for an oatmeal-covered Fluff.

The End


Ooops! Poor Nosy, it must feel quite sticky!
I remember those times ... mess, mess and more mess, at least twice a day!
Enjoyed this a lot!
Very sticky indeed! It adores Meriel, but in future it will keep out of the way when she's eating!

Thank you!
Oh dear poor nosy, Lo Meriel is as much a handfull as her father.
Nosy likes to be close to Meriel, but I think it will keep back a bit while she's eating in future!

Thank you!
If Nosy is anything like my old cat, it'll quite enjoy licking off the oatmeal
It rather depends on whether if landed on a part of it that it could reach though... Plus, I suspect Nosy is quite a bit fluffier than your cat, adding to the difficulties of gettong oatmeal out of its fur!

Thank you!

Poor Nosy probably wondered what it had done to deserve that. It too will be grateful for the shower!

It will. Oatmeal is sticky.

Thank you!
