Happy Happy Joy Joy!!!!

Excuse me while I REJOICE! Giselle ate half a hamburger and 3 pieces of BROCCOLI tonight! Of her own accord. No major persuasion needed. I almost passed out with exhileration. I know her Dad's burgers are out of this world, but I didn't think she would try them until she hit her teenage years.

The magic trick was of all things, coloured toothpicks. I decided to chop up the burger and make a little game of it, so she could pick each one up like an hors d'oeuvre. And while I was at it, I poked a couple pieces of broccoli "trees". In they popped into her mouth too. BINGO!! When she cleaned her plate she said "thank you mommy for the dinner" right after her brother excused himself from the table. She beamed as she told us she's a big girl and growing bigger and bigger and bigger.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that this is the turning point I've been waiting over a year for. Thanks for indulging a major mommy moment.

WOWYYYY!!! That's exciting news! :) Yay for Little G! That is so cool! Good for you for making a game out of it! You are one smart cookie!

Our nieces are a bit picky. I'm a bit of a cheater though...I get them to eat all their veggies by shredding cheese over top! LOL! I also make dressings that they really like.

Surprisingly, they love mixed salads with fresh raspberries or dried cranberries and sunflower seeds sprinkled over them! LOL! Maybe it's the colour that they like...I don't know, but whatever it is, it's working so far!

Maya was VERY into dinosaurs at that age, so she would eat broccoli if we told her she was a brontisaurus and she was eating trees. :)

Yay on the toothpick idea. Hey, whatever works!

Hurray! Certainly a milestone! And so polite with the "thank you!" So cute!

It's such a great feeling to know that your child is eating. Congrats to Daddy for making such great burgers. The toothpick idea is genius!
