1-3 yr olds don't understand the concept of sharing. Toddlers are (rightfully so) super egocentric. It's completely developmentally normal.

Congratulations! How exciting, but also a bit nerve wracking. Have you told your DH yet?
Best of luck to you both! I wasn't listing the dietitian website for job hunting (I never even looked at that area), but for the discussion posts. It's not too active, but I found it to be the most active RD forum. There's a student section- though, again, it doesn't have tons of recent posts. I would definitely talk to an advisor who is actually part of the dietetics program (vs one who does general student advising), to get a feel for how competitive the internship...
