A few observations from our church's recent Beef Supper.
Our 19-month old (boy) was at a highchair opposite a 21-month old (girl).
She: Had food on a large plate on her tray. Food stayed on plate or was consumed, plate stayed on tray. Was not wearing a bib, and finished the meal with nary a spot on her pink-striped sweater.
He: Was, with trepidation, allowed to have a small paper plate, which was promptly dumped, used as a hat, and waved about wildly until confiscated. Was wearing a huge bib, and finished the meal with spots not only on himself but on everything and everyone within throwing radius.
Just different personalities? Or is there some other factor at work here too?
