The past week or so, Davis has come up with the idea to play "Ratatouille", or more commonly known as "restaurant". It is going so well. He has pushed his little table and chair set in the kitchen, and loves placing his order. I give him a couple options, and he feels so important!!!

It is also working on a couple other issues: MANNERS!!! and TABLE TIME!! Both of these are very important, and he has always been decent with manners, but table time is saving my life!! Carter sits with him (for a little while!), but all the food is contained there, instead of running and eating!! I hope it continues. We have had success with different games/ideas before and they have gotten old.

What is kind of sad is that, this was all Davis' idea!!! I didn't even come up with this one. I just modified it with using good manners in restaurants, etc. Wish us luck. He has actually had a real breakfast and lunch today!!

that is so great, that he's eating! and don't feel bad about it not being your idea. lol. i wouldn't have thought of it either. Nico is going through this stage where he doesn't eat at all. all he wants is chips! so i have, had to not buy any, hoping he would eat. it has kinda work, but we can only get him to eat like 3 bites and that's it!....silly boys!

but i do LOVE the idea! and am glad to hear he's eating!
