Oh No You Didn't!

JMonster has Sensory Integration Dysfunction,

We all know that, right?

It includes aversions to smells, sounds, tastes, and especially to textures in food.

This evening we tried a yummy new recipe at dinner!

Cucumber and avocado soup.


Except, when JMonster tried it he GAGGED. 

We didn't force the issue.

He's actually thrown up at the table before.

So we told him we'd get him something else.

In the meantime, his Aunt M got up and fixed all of the kiddos tortillas with melted cheese.

He didn't want melted cheese.

He argued.

He whined.

His uncle, the Doc told him he might as well stop cuz he wasn't going to win this battle.

A few minutes later, as JMonster is sulking, his cousin A says he wants another.

So The Rev hands JMonster's to him and is just getting up to fix JMonster something else when JMonster says, "Well, I guess I won that battle!"

Yep, you guessed it.  He was sent to his room.  No dessert.  

And he was lucky...The Rev was FURIOUS!

Later I asked him why he said that.  His response?

"I thought I did!"

Boy, I know you didn't!

hee hee hee Kids say the darndest things don't they?

When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me, "Either do that or go to your room!" and every time I would go to my room. I can see this, not as an act of defiance, but more as like, she's giving me a choice: If you don't want to do whatever I'm telling you then you have to go to your room. Of course, my mom looked at it as me digging my heels in and being really disrespectful and ornery. But to me, I was just making my choice! ha ha

My Jacob has it too. He's thrown up at the table also. Mashed potatoes do it every time.
I will say that we've worked on chewing faster and he does better these days. He also does great when he knows I'm only making him eat one bite.
I laughed at his comment. I hope you tell that story at his wedding.

When I asked him what he WANTED for dinner, he said, "Daddy said he would bring me my food in here. Isn't it funny I'm getting room service while I'm in trouble?" Big grin on his face.

I made him get up and go back to the table!
