Like Rabbits

I'm so thankful my kids will eat anything set before them.  Oh, but don't think it has always been this way. Each of the kids we adopted came home with his or her own eating or feeding issues. Axel was the only one who knew how to chew or drink from an open cup. Even Amos, who had been in out of the institution for 2 1/2 years before coming here in May didn't yet know how to chew. Some wouldn't eat meat because it was a new texture to them. Raw vegetables? They're a lot of work to chew.

So how is it I have such good eaters now and have gotten into the horrible habit of giving them junk for snacks after school? Somewhere along the way it happened and it is time to stop. I love this video. Amos and Audrey eat up these veggies like little rabbits.  (and those who are watching from the therapy perspective, you'll notice a MUCH improved mess factor for Audrey. That is because Mom instituted "Dinner time bootcamp" again, only I raised the bar.)
