Chopsticks at dinner

We have a generally-followed rule in the house for our family. We all (or
just I) sit at the table until Drew has eaten as much as she can eat,
otherwise, if we all leave (as she is a very slow eater) she just stops
eating. (Not that I force her to finish it all, but seriously, the kid has
to eat SOMETHING so she doesn't wake up at 11:00 p.m. hungry).

She was so excited, that she was eating chinese food, and had to show us all
how to eat with chopsticks (no forks allowed). Of course, for her,
chopsticks are used by stabbing and poking her food.

Definition of painful = waiting for a four year old --using chopsticks, with
no experience-- to finish eating her rice. time: 45 minutes.

Explanation on why she took so long: "we had no red tablecloth mom, it makes
you eat faster."
