Tried a new place for lunch today. I was seated next to a two kids with their mom and grandma.
The youngest was 3-4 years old. He had pancakes. Mom poured on syrup and cut up for him.
He reached with his hand to start eating, and mom told him, no, use your spoon (spoon? but that’s not the point of the story). So, he picks up a piece of pancake, puts it on his spoon, and finishes the transport to his mouth.
Go little dude. Mom didn’t notice (probably too busy smoking (which is another story (I won’t be going back (I still smell of smoke)))), and he polished off his plate of food in fine fashion.
