Last Bite


Just this last week I have come aware that Matthew has trained Zack! For as long as I can remember Matthew has always asked if he can have a bite of Zack's food. If Zack is having pizza, he asks if he can have the crust. If Zack is having spaghetti, Matthew always asks "Are you going to finish that?" and so on. Now usually Zack says "No, you can't have any!" but then he always ends up giving Matthew the rest of his food or at least the last little bit.
Well now I have noticed that even if Matthew is not around, Zack cannot finish his food. He always leaves at least one bite left on his plate, always! I never have noticed it before because Matthew is always there to finish it for Zack but now that Matthew is rarely home I realize that Zack never finishes his meal, even if its his favorite food. Matthew has trained him to leave the last bite for him and now Zack cannot eat the whole of anything! The power of an older sibling!

ok you guys are nice parents, Thayne would gag at the sharing of the food thing.
It does sound like he has an older brother who has trained him to save the last bite, I find that very funny.

I swore to my younger sister that her Barbie's hair would grow back if I cut it. She let me do at least two or three haircuts before she would scream at me when she was playing with Barbies. Ahh, the power of an older sibling. :)

I wish I could leave a bite of everything I ate.

Ahh, that Pavlov knew what he was talking about. Maybe I could be conditioned to do the same thing.

You can tell our boys are realated. Mackay does the same thing to Jonah. it is always at the beginig of the meal. Jonah is not the best eater and so I am always getting on to Mackay telling him to let him eat and leave him alone. But most of the time Jonah gives it to him.

That is so funny! Triston has always finished everyone's food. Whenever anyone is slow or leaves to us the bathroom he is on their food in no time... This started in Nursery in Simi 4th. Or at least that is when I noticed it (pre-sibling) him and all the girls would sit for snack and then at the end he would play musical chairs and eat everyones left overs... Hilarious!
