It was an amazing sight this morning. g used chopsticks today. She had been trying for the last few days to varying degree of success. Mostly she ends up eating with her hands because her technique requires her to put the food onto chopsticks she had clutched tightly.
This morning she requested dumplings for breakfast. I had used chopsticks to serve it and had gone to look for her fork. By the time I returned, she had already started. So I just let her try, thinking that she would give up or use her hands. She didn't. Now granted these were pretty even sized, non-spherical shapes that would cling pretty easily to chopsticks, but she had polished off her entire plate without really using her hands. Not bad for a three year old.
So now I was considering getting her some chopstick trainers but since she has done so well, maybe she doesn't need it anymore. What do you think?
