luna - that's what my wife has her degree in, but she works as in finance... zeb - my son is pretty much the same way. especially with the ketchup. We had french fries for dinner one night, and me and the wife were talking about something, that was taking most of our attention. And every now an then my son would ask for more ketchup. Neither of us thought anything about it until the third or fourth time we put more on his plate, when I realized that his fries were not disappearing. After my attention was focused upon him, I found out why, he was using his spoon to eat the ketchup. Upon noticing my scrutiney, he added his latest fun phrase "MMMMM. Nutritious!" striker - thanks!
