One day I was correcting the kids' manners at the dinner table when they responded that life would be simpler if I just let them eat "animal style". Imagine their shock when I said OK. I took away forks and knives and said have at it.
Valiant dug in.
What? You thought your little princess would abstain?
They quickly figured out it was harder to eat without utensils than it was to eat with them. (Laughing so hard you get spaghetti sauce up your nose probably didn't help.)
