Meals with toddlers

Ever notice how a toddler cannot stand having something on his plate that he doesn't want.   I.E.  He cannot possibly have that plate near him with that one bean on it?

Ever notice how a toddler can take too big of a bite, spit his food out onto his plate, and still continue to eat off that plate?  Maybe even "re-eat" that same piece of food?

We are working on...tolerance and napkins...both for him.

(On an aside...I do remember when I was younger going out to restaurants and always ordering my food with NO guacamole.  If it came on my plate I wouldn't eat it.  I don't remember if we sent it back or put my napkin over the plate and ate nothing.  Just knowing it was there started a gag reflex.  Long story involving and avocado and my cousin's tooth.   You really don't want to know.  Suffice it to say, I'm somewhat forgiving with the children in not wanting something on their plate...but tolerance is still expected...and we never have guacamole or avocados.)
