Mark’s first visit to the buffet was very successful, especially in terms of value and quantity. After strapping the boy into his high chair, he was treated to a plate full of delicious samplings from the buffet.
He got 3 slices of peach, a slice of pear, 2 helpings of macaroni and cheese, ¼ c. shredded cheese, 1 whole roasted sweet potato, green beans, watermelon, spaghetti pieces, candied yam and apple, and two crackers.
He happily sat in his chair, tucking away the food, eating with two fists, shoving it in before he’s finished with the last fistful of food.
He ate with glee.
He ate with gusto.
He ate with great gastronomic gladness.
The second visit (the next day) was also a success.
He had peaches again, pears again, a big scoop of macaroni and cheese, more shredded cheese, another whole sweet potato, spaghetti with sauce, peas (most of them got dropped beside the chair or on the table beside the plate), and a few slices of beets. And crackers again. And a bite of banana pudding, with which he was not impressed.
The next time they see us coming, they’re going to take down the sign that says that kids under 3 eat free.
