Ds is gonna have the surprise of his life tonight. **update!!!!**
I have a rule in my house you must try one bite of each thing on your plate.
Last nights dinner was chicken enchiladas (tortea chicken and cheese -- kid friendly) black beans and Mexican rice.
Ds refused to even try a bite and put himself to bed at 6pm after quite the argument.
I texted my ex and asked if I could send the plate to his house tonight because we are switching today. In exchange he will also have left overs. This meal was bomb and seriously amazing.
He agreed. I wish I could be a fly on the wall when ds learns rules are the same at each home tonight when he sits down for dinner and sees his plate from last night.
Sometimes I love parenting wins :)
Ex just text me and says they just sat down. He was disappointed in his dinner options but had a bite of chicken. He said he didn't like it but he did take the bite. That's all we wanted. I'll update after the dinner is done :)
Update #2: ex just texted me saying they are the most delicious enchiladas ever and thanked me for te extra plate for him :)
Just got a call from ds! Conversation went like this--
"Mom! Guess what!!! I tried everything you sent! The chicken made me want to throw up. An I kind of liked the rice and beans!!!"
He was so freakin excited and happy!!!! He was so proud of himself an I'm so proud of him!!!!
Like I said parenting win!
