Oh. Never mind that little yellow feller. He’s a gift from the Grandparents when they visited China. His feet are hollow to hold chopsticks. You know, like training wheels! Big Brother still has troubles with chopsticks, Little Sister just holds one and stabs her food on to the stick. Forks are always provided but they like to try different things too. I’ll bet their little prima can use chopsticks blindfolded. She was born there, in China, and had Chinese nannies for the first year of her life.
Must be cool to have kids abroad. Oh, wait. My kids are born abroad! Nice.
