Another Story of an Empty Plate

Finally koko D earns his place on this blog with his empty clean plate. I was complaining a few weeks back how he was giving me a hard time finishing his food and feeding his ownself. Well, he has been really good the last week or so. Not only finished his food, but c-l-e-a-n-e-d the plate. I love clean plates :)
Now, I wonder what did the trick? Was it:
1. My pep talk about how he needs to be an example to his baby brother? That baby might wonder why a koko needs to be fed?
2. The fact that his grandfather has gone back to Penang and therefore, nobody to 'bully'?
3. How his big sister is now doing a fantastic job cleaning her plate and getting lots of praises from me?
4. The fact that he had to sit out on an after-meal goody that one time he didn't finish his food?
5. He loves Mommy and is trying very hard to be an obedient child?
6. Our reminders that he is not growing as he should and so his body needs the food?
7. Our cooking is getting better?
8. Our lesson that our bodies are a gift from Heavenly Father and that we are responsible to care for it?

Hmm... I wonder what did the trick?

  5. your yummy food la! eh...did u say something like if u finish this u can play your fave. game?? or something like tat?

  6. Hi Sweetpea,
    First time here must give you BIG ((hug)). Yes, usually if they are very hungry, they will be angels.

    Monster Mom:
    No ice cream leh. That's why I'm wondering what did the trick?

    Misha's Mum:

    a&a's mom:
    Hehehe. So nice of you to say that. I also hope it's that.

    Mommy of two angels:
    Eerr..I don't think so. When it comes to playing, I can't stop them even if I tried. Probably no fav snacks.

  7. Hey, u give him very big portion ahh? the plate looks like very 'big' wor! hahaha!

  8. All of the above plus 1 more: His body naturally balances itself out--after under-eating for a few weeks, it's time to make up for lost time. Learned from Dr. Spock long long time ago =)


Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
