The brunette twin is a finicky eater. She's the kind of child who looks at mac-n-cheese and declares she doesn't like it because the noodles "look funny." She can make any meal a nightmare simply because of one ingredient.
Don't get me wrong. She will eat whatever is put in front of her. We don't run a short order cafe at mealtime in this house. She makes it difficult, though.
Recently the blond twin set the table so that she sat right next to her twin. I told her to move the chairs back to their normal places. She countered with, "I'll make sure Sissy eats if she sits right next to me."
I happily took that deal. I didn't think it would make a difference, but I went with her logic. You know what? The brunette twin has been better since she has been sitting next to her sister. I don't know why it works and in all honesty I don't care. If letting them sit side by side makes our meals more pleasant, I'm all for it.
