he ate what??

This next blog entry is truly news worthy!!!!!  For those who don't know, my almost 3 year old son Gavin does not eat what I like to call "people food."  He lives on yogurt and cold cereal.  Once a month, maybe a piece of fruit.  Sometimes pretzels, graham crackers, or gold fish, but THAT IS IT! He's never had meat,  or bread, and vegetables only a few times when he was a baby.  His eating habits seriously suck!!  And believe me, I have done everything I can think of to get him to eat, but he won't even give food a try. Until last night that is.  In a strange turn of events, Gavin sat down to the plate of food I served him, (I always give him a plate "just in case") and............ wait for it................. he ate chicken!!  He ate chicken I said!!!  It was completely unexpected, uncoerced, and made my entire week!  Not only did he eat the pieces I cut up for him, but he wanted a whole piece for himself, just like a good little carnivore.  Um, yes I got pictures.  This was most definitely an event I want documented!  I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief, my son is capable of eating like a human being.  Fingers crossed for our next meal, lets hope he doesn't forget how great it was!


  1. Go Gavin! That is a major breakthrough in the Casper home! =)

  2. OH MY GOSH! It's like a freakin' miracle! Amazing! Way to go Gavin! Maybe it's the start of something new.

  3. He probably doesn't like to eat meat because it's cannibalism... since he's such a stinkin ham!
