Monday 19 November 2007: Big spoon

Getting Bella to eat her dinner can often be a bit of a challenge.

Sometimes, she point-blank refuses the first mouthful even though we know she really likes what's on her plate.

Sometimes, she'll decide she wants what we're eating more than what she's eating, even though it contains enough chilli and salt to cause an instant haemorrhage.

Sometimes, she'll eagerly eat six spoonfuls then stop dead and refuse another morsel... until pudding comes out, when her appetite magically returns.

This evening, she began eagerly but stopped after about 12 forkfuls. We tried airplanes and everything, but she was having none of it... until she spotted Layla picking at the left-overs with the serving spoon.

Bingo. Problem solved.
