Wemby Mbutia is originally from Kenya, but has long moved and lives in Dublin, Ireland, following local traditions. In particular, their family has ham on the table, and her 4-year-old daughter Zuria carries a box of sandwiches with her to kindergarten. But when one piece of ham remained untouched for the last week, my mother became worried and gave her daughter an interrogation with passion.
Given: ham, delicious and fresh, children’s version with a minimum of fat. Moreover, little Zuria herself chose this one when they went shopping for the last time. And now he refuses to eat. And not because I’m full — bread, salad and other sandwich components have been consumed by the growing body for a long time. But the unfortunate piece of ham is not. And tears hail to the question «Why?».
As a result, Wemby still pulled out a confession from her daughter and did not believe what she heard at first. Little Zuria refuses to eat ham in the shape of a bear, because she is «very cute!». How can you eat this delight? Mom’s heart was broken, she had no idea that the reason could be like this. Here it is, childish thinking and spontaneity, Zuria loves animals and cannot, does not want to eat a ham bear, although it seems to be food. But he’s cute!
And what do you want to do in such a situation? Of course, you can explain everything and make the child eat, but Zuria was so inconsolable when she told her mother the truth that Wemby didn’t have the determination to do it. She agreed that the ham bear should not be eaten, so we will put it in a separate container with a transparent lid and store it in the refrigerator. Everyone in the family was warned not to touch the «saved» and now Zuria regularly checks how he is doing.
And Wemby’s mom has sworn off buying food in the form of anything but the food itself. And so feeding the child is a whole problem, and then there’s this ham… well, yes, honey.
