She made it only once out of every 3 or 4 attempts. I occasionally relaxed the timing a little when she failed too many times in a row (must keep her motivated) and when she appeared to be trying so valiantly - gulping soup/water to wash the food down. Didn't want her to lose the joy in eating either.
Finally... TEN stars!
My TEN stars!
Phew... it wasn't easy! Someone had to watch her, put food in her spoon and/or feed her or she'd get completely distracted from eating. My parents helped with almost half the stars.
Thank you to Ah Mah, Ah Kong and all my fans... err helpers
