Muffins And Toddlers

Hub and I had arranged to meet some friends for lunch today.  We left Vinay at home (sleeping) and decided that when we got back we’d take him out to a restaurant where they have a big(ish) aquarium and have dessert.

We arrived, found a table near the fish and sat down.  I spotted a mum from playgroup with her toddler.  We waved and smiled at each other.

I knew Vinay wouldn’t sit quietly while we ate, so I went up to the bakery counter and looked for something to get for him to munch on.  There wasn’t much choice, so I got him a plain muffin.  He was quite excited!

I don’t like V to eat cakes, sweets and chocolates.  Sometimes I’ll offer them to him if we’re at a birthday party or somewhere, but he usually refuses.  However, if anyone *else* was to give him some – I would not be happy!

The playgroup mum was next to me when I ordered and said, ‘Oh.  Will he eat that?’  I shrugged in response.  I really didn’t know.  She then said to me, ‘Does he usually eat sweet food then?’  I told her the truth, ‘No.  Very rarely.’  She replied with, ‘Hmmm.’


Am I being overly-sensitive?

Yes, probably.
