The Clock Is Ticking

Michael and I got to the point of being at the end of ourselves with Zeke and his eating habits.  That kid could sit at the table an hour or more eating his dinner.  In recent weeks he has taken a meal that takes the rest of the family twenty minutes to eat and made it into an hour plus.  A common sight in our house is Zeke sitting at the table finishing his dinner while I am cleaning up the dishes, sweeping the floors and then turning off the kitchen lights to head upstairs to shower Ki.  Last night was the last of that... Michael and I decided that we will set a timer out and he will have a set amount of time to eat and whatever he does not eat will be thrown out and he is out of luck for the rest of the night, no snacks no juice just water.  I sure hope that it works!
