You don’t know the meaning of a long lunch until you’ve eaten with a toddler. Inevitably, their favorite snack yesterday is their most loathed enemy today, and don’t even think about letting any of the foods on their plate come close to touching each other unless you’re prepared to deal with a meltdown of epic proportions.
