Teach Your Children Well

My Big Kids know how to use utensils, but I can't figure out where I went wrong with Little Brother.  I have never met a child so resistant to the use of a knife and fork.  The kid even eats ice cream with his fingers if you don't stop him.

Overheard at my dinner table tonight:

"Little Brother, ravioli is not a finger food."

"It is if you fold it up like a taco!"

That didn't fly...we made him pick up his fork.

You can lead a child to silverware, but you can't make him like it.

Praise the Lord that FIver is not the only child who thinks forks are just lovely decorations next to his plate! :)
