I've been thinking about mothers and fathers and the differences and I think I've worked it out.
A mother, upon her child spying her eating something nice and wanting some, will pick the juiciest loveliest bit and give it to her child, and have the other bit herself.
A father, upon his child spying him eating something nice and wanting some, will pick the juciest loveliest bit and put it aside for himself, and give the other bit to his child.
Or is that unfair?
