J finally ate one bite of everything on his plate for the first night since we instated the "One Bite Rule." Our "new" food for the night (we're trying to put one new food on his plate each night) was homemade home fries (sliced potatoes fried in a pan). This was a little bit of a wimping out on our part as we did get J to try these once before. Anyway, he didn't want to eat any, but he finally did eat one. So for the first night in four nights, we got to play after dinner instead of going straight to bed. We went to the playground. We had a blast! I hope the trend continues tonight. We are hoping that a successful night with good consequences will help J realize what good comes from following the One Bite Rule. We will see how tonight goes. On a positive note, J is eating more of his other food now that this rule is in place. Often, once he takes the one bite, he remembers he likes that food and eats more of it.
Happy Monday, everyone!
