Typically in the morning, we give Owen a snack (granola bar) and a juice, then we eat breakfast an hour to an hour and a half after he gets up. Sometimes (rarely) we just skip the snack and eat breakfast a bit earlier. We just used to give him the snack, but lately he’s started asking for it.
So this morning, I decide we will eat breakfast early, and this is what happened:
Owen: Snacks! Snacks!
Me: No, it’s time for breakfast.
Owen: SNACKS! SNACKS!
Me: Okay. [Hand him a granola bar.]
Owen: [Finishes the bar in about two minutes.] Breakfast!
