The crying didn't stop right away, and when I looked over at the twins in their high chairs, they were really frustrated and mad. Emma was sitting just out of their reach, meticulously measuring out their Cheerios into bowls with a tablespoon. She wanted to make sure they "weren't eating too many carbs, Mommy!"
