Chopsticks

Last night, while Trina was out with her friends for Book Club, Molly and I sat down at the dinner table for dinner together.  I asked Molly if she wanted the white chair (high chair) or the polka dot chair for big girls (booster seat).  After hearing “big girls” she chose the big chair. 

After a few bites of salmon, brown rice, and Brussels sprouts, she told me she wanted a blue fork (rather that the yellow one).  I told her that the blue fork was dirty and in the dishwasher, so she couldn’t use it.  That held her for a few minutes, until she indicated that she wanted a different fork, climbed down from her chair, and walked into the kitchen to get a new fork. 

After a couple of drawers open and close and a bit of rustling around, out she came with two non-matching chopsticks.  Perhaps she thinks she has mastered the fork and needs a new challenge.  She did get a little food to her mouth with the chopsticks, mainly what would stick to it or she had skewered.

After dinner we watched It’s a Bug’s Life together.  She stayed up past her bed time, but as always she wasn’t complaining, and when it was time for bed she settled down willingly.
