Many of you know that Cam has about 10 things on his list of foods he'll eat. I'm constantly hearing, "Oh kids always go through picky phases". Well, this "phase" has lasted over a year. Something not quite right about that. Anyway, last night I had enough. I decided to tackle pasta this morning. After a few failed tries, a huge tantrum, and him going hungry all morning, he ended up giving in with the promise of a raisin if he ate the pasta. Later we even snuck some chicken on his plate and he gobbled it all up! This may not seem huge to some, but for us, this was such a victory.
Later we had pudding play time. Cam doesn't consider this play time as he hates the feel/texture of pudding on his hands, but it is something I do because it is good for him. I'm also trying to work with him in prep for when he starts Occupational Therapy again. I don't think I have mentioned that after taking him to a pediatric neurologist a few weeks back, she recommended we put him back into OT and Speech because she felt like his sensory difficulties still needed some working with. Anyway, I couldn't get him to touch it...until I put raisins in it. I was so proud that he picked out all the raisins and didn't even fuss.
