In the spirit of another food & child related comic (check out the previous two), I offer you Parental Math. I must be doing *something* right, because instead of scarfing her food down, and eating until she is over full, my daughter takes her time. She savors. She can stop eating dessert three bites from done, because she simply doesn’t want anymore. How do people DO that? She doesn’t get it from me! ALL the reading says this is wonderful, and so good for her. I believe it. However, that doesn’t stop it from driving me occasionally COMPLETELY INSANE.
And in case anyone is wondering, the 45 minutes is not an exaggeration.
