Well mine is 30 and he claims that my stuff just always "tastes" better. Even when he has exactly the same thing, say a glass of ice water somehow mine just looks so much more refreshing.
Babies are the same though. I remember eating something they wouldn't eat just so they would want it. I would be like OMG this is sooooooooo good and then suddenly it was all they ever wanted
Don't pop her. It sounds like she would understand if you did the same thing to her (i.e. sad face, now I'm starving because you keep taking my food).
The funniest thing is how THEY don't want to share their food. You should see how she likes a piece of her own medicine.
You can actually trade "plates" with a kid and suddenly the food is more delicious because it was yours
SMH. Babies are crazy!
