So to help me speed things up and get lunch to the table more quickly, Jacob unloaded the entire contents of my tupperware cabinet, found his lunch box and the lunch boxes of his siblings, and set the table for me. Then he added a few extra plastic cups, just for good measure. One of these days I'll break it to him that the lunch boxes are useless unless someone packs them first.
When he had completed whatever it was he was trying to accomplish, he whined at my feet for a few minutes to no avail, then set out to get his chair positioned at the table.
For a kid that won't eat, he sure does have some pretty specific ideas about lunchtime.
