To: Mr. Brightside
Another case of SIPS (Self-Indulgent Parent Syndrome). Today we breakfasted at a very popular Sunday brunch locale. Right beside us was a family with two small children. Parents and children each picked up a fully loaded plate of food. Little Boy had clearly taken more than he could eat, but plugged steadily away at his food until he had gotten about three-fourths through. Little Girl just picked at her meal. I think she ate a total of one roast beef protein molecule and one pancake syrup ion, despite her parents' repeated entreaties to eat just a little more for Mommy please. That moppet is obviously destined for membership in Future Anorexics of America.
Finally the family got p and left. Yep: Mommy and Daddy's plates were still half full too.
