Ordinary Moments: sharing

20140308-173549.jpg

It’s universal isn’t it, children always prefer what you’re having to their own! They love to share; your food, your juice, your treats… woe betide you if you try and eat chocolate in their presence!

I know that it won’t be long before the 4yo is old enough to want demand his own fizzy drinks; sharing mummy’s won’t have the same appeal. And, he was actually very sweet on this occasion, he even said please; looking at me with those big blue eyes. How could I resist?

    Gorgeous photo and so true! My one year old much prefers my food to his (which I have usually spent much more time on) and today hoovered up some victoria sponge complete with cream when I wasn’t fully paying attention…..

      Oh yes, I’ve been there! My little girl toddled off and found herself some ‘cake cake’ today when I wasn’t looking :)

    I have come to the conclusion that they think ours must taste better even if we’re having the same thing, but I’m happy to share while they’re still so young #blogclub

      Absolutely, mummy’s must taste better! I don’t really mind, it’s quite sweet really :)

    What a lovely photo and moment! I saw a great cartoon somewhere last week of a child having the same food as his mummy, only treble the size, and still wanting the food off his mummy’s plate. The grass (food/ drink) is always greener on mummy’s plate, or in mummy’s glass.

      It really is, isn’t it! It can be identical, but still taste different from mummy’s plate :)

    This situation looks very familiar! What a lovely photo and it’s always good to teach your children to share by leading by example (unless cake is involved obviously!)
