- Christmas Time is Here by Charlie Brown Christmas
Before Lee was born I met a Lao couple that the husband worked the day shift and wife worked the night shift and they had a 2 year old at the time. The little girl stayed home with her parents, and mom would sleep during the day time, while the little girl had to help herself. The mother said that she would have plenty of ready to eat food in a small fridge and the toddler would help herself when she got hungry, talking about learning to help yourself at a young age. I was amazed and still is to this day because at that age Lee couldn’t do much for herself, the only thing that she was good at was to be able to amuse herself for hours playing with her toys.
Most children are picky eaters, and Lee is no exception. When she was little, I used to worry about her not eating, but many would tell me that she will eat when she is hungry, and sure enough she never starved herself, obvious by her photos here. I do have to say that I do too much for her, at her age my parents would send me and my younger sister to care for the water buffaloes, and my 4 year old sister staying home by herself with a dog, but that was back in Thailand and time has changed.
Lee takes the initiative of wanting to prepare her own meal, not very often though and something that we need to work on. I noticed that she eats better when she is more involved in preparing her own food, one of her favorites is Spring Roll, I think eventually she will become a pro, she might be like me, and Spring Roll is the only thing that I’m good at, just passing down the family recipe here.
