The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

In this picture you can see Devin eating peanut butter by the spoonful. The funniest part of this story is that I had just happened to leave the container out after making myself a sandwich and Devin went to the drawer and got himself a spoon so that he could do this. This is totally me! I mean totally! Only I would teach my son to do something like this. For all my effort of not wanting to teach them certain habits, what do I do? I teach him to eat peanut butter by the spoonful - for shame!

What I have managed to avoid teaching them (so far): 1) Cinnamon Toast 2) Chocolate Chips by the handful for snacks 3) Shreddies dipped in Cheese Whiz (Thanks for that one Mel!) 4) Nutella 5) Licking the peanut butter off the knife

Things that I meant not to happen: 1) Corn Syrup on Rice Krispies 2) Butter & salt on vegetables 3) Butter on Pancakes 4) Chocolate Chips in Pancakes 5) Eating Peanut Butter by the spoonful 6) Butter & salt on popcorn (lots of butter) 7) Dip for their raw vegetables

I think you and I have a lot more similarities than I thought and I am very glad to hear that I am not the only one who thinks chocolate chips are meant to be eaten by the handful.
