Nature or Nurture: You Decide

Earlier this afternoon I was on the phone with MHW while she was taking something out of the freezer (probably tofu). The Baby was sitting on the floor next to MHW and noticed some chocolate bars on the bottom shelf. She quickly grabbed the bag, took out a frozen chocolate bar, unwrapped it and ate it. Frozen.

I'm so proud.

So the question is: Nature or nurture?

Did she learn this from me or is it in her bones?

(By the way, the Baby certainly did not learn it from MHW. Had she learned from MHW, she would have broken off one eighth of the choclate bar, put it back in its wrapper, and put it back in the freezer).

    this is not germain, it is acctually in referance to the post about ketchup, i just saw that one late, didn't get to post, and i think this a very important. OOS posited that heinz ketchup, more than any other product, is not matched by other brands. i strongly disagree. not about about the heinz part, heinz is clearly the best and nobody comes close. i have heard of such people that stock up on pesach ketchup, i think they are crazy. the other product that i can think of is Hellman's mayo. who buys anything but hellman's!!! and if you accidentally find yourself with some other brand you will quickly realize you mistake.
    sorry for changing the subject, i just thought this wasa important.

    in the name of Intellectual honesty, i must say that i once had mayo that came in a tube from belgium that was differant, but a good alternative to hellmans. but we cant count that because the people in belgium put mayo on everything, of course they are going to do it right!
