Has this ever happened to you?

That, when you are feeding your child, you take a few bites out of the bowl in the hope that it empties sooner?

In the back of your mind you know that you may have mixed too much in the first place and so you help the process along. Alternatively, if the bowl empties too soon you will go and mix some more if your child wants more. But still. It's a weird set of thoughts.

If this has never happened to any of you moms or dads, you'd better not tell me.

Funny but this reminds me of my mom who loved the taste of Cerelac:)

Phew, you guys! Thank god I'm not alone!

N'ville Mom, I'm glad you remembered your mom, but cerelac! No! I was talking about cheerios and yogurt rice and stuff like that. :)

I have to confess - I take a few bites - yes, one reason to empty it sooner. But there's another don't-tell-anyone kind of reason too... I simply cannot resist if it's paruppu chaadham with rasam, the nei pesanja kind (mushy with a generous portion of ghee)..Oh, my...ya, mom's tastebuds haven't grown yet! Yes. I do the same with creamy yogurt rice too!! :-)

If I am feeding the older and I am hungry you may well imagine what happens and when in a rush, yes to accelerate the process, we moms need to help them don't we ?

Got your mail, shall respond soon

Wonder why the yummy ghee coated paruppu saadham tastes yummier only when it goes into that lil one's bowl...and you asking me how I know???? ;)
My sister still mopes around the kids and their food bowls, hoping for that one "thutthu"

Keep the confessions rolling in! This is too good!

I ate simply because I was hungry and my kid wasn't eating fast enough!! I rationalised that I could always fill his bowl again.. but let the obviously starving party have a few nips in as well now!!
