Accepting a mess

I gave in yesterday. Usually I give her porridge in the evening with a spoon. But when she started spitting it out in her hand to then mess around I figured, maybe she wants to eat by herself. Lately she's been doing that, eating with her hands. It's SO convenient for me as I can just place some food in front of her and then tadaaaaa she's finished after a while. I saw the opportunity to do the same with the porridge... 

...I put the bowl of porridge in front of her...she took a hand full of porridge in her hand AND she DIDN'T eat it but instead continued to squeeze it and drop it all over the floor.

Well well...could have worked
