Went out for tacos tonight, after the parents had a really stressful work day. Charlotte amazed us with her Big Kid behavior. She waited at the bar for a table, sat at her seat and amused herself with her tote bag of stuff. Charlotte ordered a cheese quesadilla, which came with rice & black beans. We told her that she didn't have to eat the beans, but it would be nice if she tried them. She tried them, ate some, ate some rice, and even used her fork and knife properly! I don't think we've ever given her a knife to use (except to cut a banana), and she did a great job pushing rice onto her fork with the knife. We were kind of blown away. She also drank her water from a glass and managed to not sit there fishing ice cubes out with her fingers. Seriously, we were so impressed. Kind of had us sitting there, jaws open, while she sat and ate like a civilized little human being. Wacky.
