She then proceeds to try her hand at openeing the can. When she realizes she can't do it, she walks up to me and hold the can in front of her, wimpering, waiting for me to open the can for her. Fer cryin' out loud, kid, yer not going to waste away!
One of Mal's favorite snacky foods are Cheezy Poofs from Gerber. They're not really called that. We call them that thanks to "South Park."
These things have some serious bargaining power with Mallory. For instance, if she's antsy in her chair and we need a few minutes to something around the house we pour out some Poofs and she quiets right up and goes to town.
Yesterday after I came home from the store Steve and the girls walk in. Mallory is wandering around the kitchen looking in the bags of food when she spots the familiar can.
Never underestimate the power of The Cheezy Poof!
