If you had the chance to be different, why try so hard to fit in? Embrace your &quot;disability&quot; or whatever makes you special, because if you do then people will become jealous of YOU.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7862653040578109197.post-38916298732216367412011-02-17T14:20:24.773-05:002011-02-17T14:20:24.773-05:00Love these snippets of parenting wisdom...two bite...Love these snippets of parenting wisdom...two bites that&#39;s adventurous!

If I work slowly at her pace she usually surpasses all of my and her expectations of what she accomplishes. I am talking little things here like starting in the middle of the hill for sledding and skiing the green slopes all day until the very end or being in the shallow end of a pool until she is jumping off the side. So what I say is do not discourage baby steps!

I always tried with them &quot;the two bite rule&quot; ... it may look funny, smell funny, definitely NOT a McD&#39;s happy meal! Just two bites, thoroughly chewed and swallowed. This allowed them the chance to try &quot;strange&quot; dishes (octopus, Thai etc) and if, after 2 real true Bites, they just could not stomach the meal, they were allowed to opt out for a PB &amp; J or something bland on the menu .... nowadays, I am proud of both of them, because they are Not picky eaters, and both are also excellent chefs in their own right! one small culinary act of courage :)Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
