Scotty took a great nap (as he should, after all of that yelling earlier in the day) and I plopped him in the car seat with his favorite book and little stuffed bear as I packed the car. He made the sign for "food" so I promptly dug out a granola bar, unwrapped it, and handed it to him. He began to happily snack on it while flipping through his book.
It wasn't until we had been driving for several minutes did I realize things were very quiet in the backseat. So I looked back and found him...
...feeding his bear.
OMG. So cute.
At the red light, I turned to watch the process. The little bear was tucked in by his right arm, and Scotty very carefully swiveled to his side and offer his food to his friend. He took a bite of the bar, and then held it up to the bear's mouth. This went on until the granola bar was gone. Obviously, the bear was not eating much so Scotty got the lion's share, but it was a very generous offer.
Now only if we could translate this skill when other (real) children are involved. I fear Scotty is going to get the reputation for being the school yard bully for how he manages to wrestle toys and snacks from other toddlers.
But the Bear had no problems sharing with his bear. Life is strange some times.
