Me (all day, every day): “You have to eat your meal. Please. Just eat your food.”
One exception: If we’re at Panera and you order Mac n’ Cheese. Mommy will eat whatever is left, and possibly eat the entire bowl if you’re not quick enough. And she’ll probably use the baguette to scoop up the leftover creamy cheese sauce in the bowl. And she should probably just order her own bowl instead of salivating over yours, but we both know she’s going to order a “salad” to get her “veggies” to “set a good example” and then sneak that bag of chips closer to you as you eat and ask, “Are you done with your noodles? Do you want some chips? Look at these chips! Soo tasty! How about candy? Want a cookie? Brownie?
Just give Mommy the mac n’ cheese.”
