Last night my niece and nephew came over for dinner while mum and dad went out on a surprise mid-week date (woooh!).
It was homemade pizzas all round. Nice. Easy. Kid popular. Very yum.
My nephew (4yrs), who talked non-stop during the eating-of-dinner process and as a result barely finished half his dinner (the rest was inhaled by his sister), was very disappointed when he asked for dessert after the table was cleared and was told there was no dessert for kids who don't finish their dinner.
Sad face for a minute or two while deep in thought.....before he very earnestly said to me, "but my mum always gives me dessert when I haven't eaten all my dinner."
Good try little buddy but your mum won't give me dessert when I haven't finished my dinner! You, my little friend, have no chance!
