“They” say that a child will eat when they wants, that you should look at the daily intake, not the individual meal.
“They” lie and I can prove it.
Lily Apple Cline will not eat if Luke is around and playing.
Lily Apple Cline will stop eating, mid mouthful, if Luke is enticing her to go play.
Lily Apple Cline will not eat before 10am.
All of these things Lily Apple Cline will not do, no matter how hungry she is. Ravenous, hasn’t eaten in two days, does not matter. Her brother takes president, every time, without a doubt.
