Dinner & Dessert

My little girl who is four said about an hour after dinner tonight that she was still hungry. Normally my response to this quandry would be, "Well missy you should have thought about that when you didn't eat all of your dinner. You're not getting anything else before bed." Well, I could not use that line because she did eat all of her dinner! She ate every single bite. I think that I will try this tactic again. She LOVES corn on the cob. Normally she will eat one cob, want seconds and just play with the rest of the food on her plate. Yes, she already knows how to spread the food around so that it looks like she ate more! Well, tonight her corn was hot so she had to wait for it to cool down. In the mean time, she ate all of the other food on her plate! Voila...problem solved. But, I digress...this post actually has a funny twist to it. She wanted something else after dinner, she ate all of her dinner and I had to comply. She had some strawberry yogurt. She ate the entire conatiner of yogurt, put her spoon in the sink, yogurt container in the trash can, and proceeded to the living room. She boldly stated that she thinks all she needs now is a cookie. "Mommy, I think that my tummy is telling me now that I need just one cookie to be full." Then she completed the sentence with a big smile. She didn't get a cookie...I'm not that easy.

Great strategy you've figured out! Cool that she cleans up after herself already, too. Good job!

How nice that she knows how to clean up after herself. I'm impressed. Very good training at such a young age.

Haha! What a cute story. Little girls are something, aren't they? My littlest one does pretty much the same thing. She devours dinner and asks for a treat a few hours after. But I'm afraid I'm a lot easier than you. :-)
