Persistance really does pay off.

Four years!
It took four years, but LOOK what I found in Jaysen's lunch box!...




Peeps. Are you able to comprehend the magnitude of this feat?!?
My child...my food-issue child...actually ATE an apple.
By his own free will.
I know!
Take a minute to catch your breath because yesterday, there was THIS...



I know!
And just when you thought it couldn't get any better...
Today!...



Alright, so he didn't do as good of a job on today's, but still.
This is huge.
Jaysen, I am so proud of you!

As far as the rest of that apple...
Enter the clean up crew.

Bon appetit!

Seriously, I get how amazing this is. And I had to laugh, because only someone with a food challenged child would ever think to post a picture of a chewed up apple. Most beautiful picture I've ever seen!

That's awesome!! I agree with ASD Mommy, we parents of food challenged children can get really excited over things like a bite from an apple!
