365: Gummy Worm Day

July 15 is Gummy Worm Day. Gummy worms are a staple of childhood to me. I have fond memories of munching on them as a child. Today felt like the perfect day to introduce them to Jude.
I gave Jude some gummy worms in some chocolate pudding. I knew more of it would end up on him than in his belly, so I wasn't too worried about the sugar. As predicted, Jude turned the entire snack into a sensory project. He tasted, smelled, touched, listened his way through the squishy pudding and the slick worms.
Jude had a great time eating and playing with the snack. It was ultimately a giant mess, but nothing that wasn't fixed with water and soap. It was hard for me to just let happen what was going to happen, but I'm glad I did!
