What Kai ate for lunch today!!!! He even tried an orange pepper slice. This will only impress those who have known what a struggle it was for us to get Kai to eat anything besides P.B. toast and chicken nuggets. Or really, anything that wasn’t beige…sigh. He gagged on fruit,veggies and wait for it…Cookies, candy, and cake! So I couldn’t even bribe him with sweets.
This killed me as a make my own baby food kinda mom! I was sure it must have been all my fault until little Cliodhna arrived and happily devoured avocado, humus, onions, peppers, brocoli, peas, and the like.
My doctor told me not to force him to eat things because that would create bigger food issues. She insisted he would grow out of it. To be honest,I thought she was a quack! But as I set his lunch out today and watched him happily dive in to it, I realized he indeed grew out of it!
Anyway, I had to pause and be thankful for how far he has come.
Just like the thumb sucking I thought I’d never see the day when we were on the other side of it all. Now, I will have to come up with something else to keep me up at nights.
"Whatever an education is, it should make you a unique individual, not a conformist; it should furnish you with an original spirit with which to tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to find values which will be your road map through life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you are, whomever you are with; it should teach you what is important, how to live and how to die."
– John Taylor Gatto
