Silverware or Chopsticks?

Ada saw me eat with chopsticks for the first time last week. I grabbed some veggie sushi rolls from the local supermarket for lunch. They looked much better than they really were but that's okay. I didn't think anything of using the chopsticks until she stole them from my hand and tried them out herself...on a grape of all things.

I give her major points for creativity as she held the chopsticks in her right hand, the grape in her left hand, put the grape next to the chopsticks and shoved it into her mouth. Not bad for her first attempt. Now if I could just get her to use her silverware...

Moral of the story: Two-year-olds tend to be copy cats with everything you do. Beware as this may be cute, or problematic.
