I can say what I want about my ex but I truly appreciate we are always on the same page with ds.

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 :)

Update 1:
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 :)

*****final update!!!********
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!

Oh I will. My ex is psyched because he is a horrible cook. I think that's what he misses the most :)
