So we're trying to get him used to eating his food on a plate. First things first. Dump all food onto tray.
Second look proud of accomplishment.
Next begin licking plate so as not to miss any small specks that may remain.
Someday he may learn to be civilized. Otherwise he's going to have a hard time getting past the first date stage with any girl in the future. He may be a good looking guy, but a little embarassing to be seen with at a restaurant. Maybe he would do better starting out just going for coffee. No, he throws his cup when he's done with it so that won't work either. Mom will have her hands full teaching him some manners. On second thought...I don't want my baby dating anyway so go ahead and dump that plate!
