Toddler's Law #1

The amount of food* a toddler will eat is inversely proportional to how much food a parent places on toddler's plate. This guarantees parents will not be able to eat their meals without 4000 interruptions to go get "mo" of said food.

*also works with beverages.

The more a parent is convinced his/her child will not like a food (and so parent prepares only a small amount of said food sufficient to feed him/herself) the more likely the toddler will LOVE said food and eat all of parent's meal.

Guess it's a good way to diet?

Is there also some corollation involving a parent using the phone and a toddler having a crisis situation that requires immediate attention?

This sounds familiar. Or, you think they'll love the food and make a ton and then you eat it all yourself because they hate it.

Sandy, the phone thing happens all the time too!
