Ike is all about his meals and snacks. As soon as he hears the promising plastic rustle of my hand digging deep into a bag of turkey jerky or peanut butter-and-bacon-flavored biscuits, the boy starts drooling. His ears go up, his eyes wax hopeful and the irises contract as he laser-beams his gaze at whatever delicious nugget is in my hand. I can tell, though, that he doesn't understand the concept of savoring his treat. Even as he [barely] crunches -let along tastes- one snack, his eyes focus on the next snack [he hopes] is in my hand. I think it's too late to teach Ike another concept: delayed gratification.
