Sherilyn would normally take between 1-3 hours to finish her meals. During breakfast, she would sit at the dining table and take her own sweet time to eat her food, play with her food, play with her toys, climb up and down the chairs and hop from one chair to another, drop her food, spill her drinks, etc. and dilly dally for hours until it’s time for lunch. I don’t even have to clean her up for she will ‘transit’ from breakfast to lunch. The same thing happens during dinner. Sometimes she would eat from 7pm till 10pm until the dining table is cleared and everyone else has taken their shower and she would still be there chewing her food and ‘fatt ngau tau’ (daydreaming). I get really stressed up during meal times because of her. No amount of coaxing would make her eat her food sometimes.
The other day, she was still storing her food in her mouth after more than an hour. It was already almost 9pm and she was pacing the house up and down. She went from room to room and then stood at the kitchen balcony to look at people swimming at the pool. To encourage her to eat her food, I brought a stool to the kitchen and asked her to sit there and eat. When I said that, her face lit up and she quickly brought her plate of cold food and sat there to eat and watched people swimming!
See how happy my brat is… but Sherilyn being Sherilyn, she dropped her food all over the kitchen floor but at least she finally finished her food at almost 9:30pm. Sigh….. Sherilyn oh Sherilyn…. mummy just wishes you’ll eat as enthusiastically as your cheh cheh.
