I am constantly telling Pumpkin, who is a notoriously picky eater, to chew her food thoroughly before swallowing.
“Small bites,” I’m always reminding her, “then swallow.”
This morning, I sat at the table, head in my hands—exhausted and with a very long to-do list running through my mind, while Pumpkin sat eating her breakfast.
“Small bites. Small bites.”
I looked up to see her instructing her spoonful of cereal, before putting it in her mouth.
I guess I need reminding too, sometimes!
