Rule of Fours

Posted by Heather at Thursday, March 06, 2014
Back when Katy was little (well, younger than she is, now ;-), we started this little rule where she had to at least eat as many bites/do as many chores/etc. as whatever her current age was. For example, when we were pleading with her to eat her veggies at dinner, we'd tell her, "Please eat three more bites of your carrots and then you may be excused."

Well, now that she's four, the antes been upped. Instead of three bites to be excused, it's four!

So, the other  night we were eating dinner and Lil' Miss didn't want to eat her spinach. I told her that she needed to eat four more bites of spinach and then she could be done. She ate her remaining spinach in two bites.

Then, coming to the end of her portion of veggies, she exclaimed, "Hey! I only ate two bites! I need two more bites-ful of spinach!"

I don't know if I should be proud that she did some math, smirk at the fact that she was actually asking more for more vegetables, or just laugh at the whole situation. Obligingly, though, I just heaped some more spinach onto her plate.

Hee, hee... whatever works!
