I think my 2 year old is training for an eating contest.
About a week ago, the boys and I were eating cereal for breakfast. I was sitting next to K and I noticed he was eating rather quickly. OK, he was piling food into his mouth at an amazing rate. Within a minute, he was done and looked at me and said, "I won mommy. You lost." I just laughed. I thought he was just being silly. But then it happened again at lunch with macaroni and cheese, and again at dinner with chicken, rice and peas. That evening I was really beginning to wonder, "What is he doing??"
Since that day, at least once a day, K will eat furiously and, when done, looks around and proclaims, "I won!" I try to tell him that he needs to eat slowly and, most times he listens, but every once in a while, he acts as if he is in an eating contest.
I guess I should be proud. Some moms are proud when their children grow up and want to dedicate their lives to the Lord. I will be proud when K eats more hot dogs than anyone else!!
