Because I Can't Seem to Get to the Camera Upstairs...

Thank you everybody for your great ideas with Shea. It's slowly getting better. It took four years to get this off kilter and will probably take another four years to get closer to normal. Last night we went to dinner at Pete and Amy's. Amy made a yummy pork tenderloin, rice and broccoli. I explained to Shea that he had to taste something. We were going trick or treating after dinner and he wasn't going to get to enjoy any of the candy haul if he didn't try something. I explained I didn't care if it was pork or rice, but he had to try something. He opted for the broccoli. Granted, you needed a glass slide and microscope to see the bite he took- but he tried it. We've also been grading the new foods. Did you know that broccoli is a Y and banana chips are a Z? Because sweetened banana chips are worse than broccoli.

In the meantime, I made this quick video for a friend this morning. I've been hitting play again and again on it because I find it slightly addictive. I don't know why, but I thought I'd share it with you.

I own a punk ass rabbit??? WTF are you teaching your children?!?

And I totally understood and was coming over to ask before I read your comment...

Glad to hear he took a bite of something new!! Every little bit counts!!

LOL - I played it about five times, on the "pardon me, for a moment, I thought you said ..." principle. It seems the child IS actually saying, "I own a punk-ass rabbit." But this begs the question - Where IS the punk-ass rabbit? We want to see it!

Ah, Shea. Try the tenderloin. It's delicious! You are getting very sleepy ... Look at the tenderloin ... look only at the tenderloin ...

Glad he did have a bite of the broc though. Bravo!

Hi, I came over from Just another mommy blog when I saw 'gettysburg' in your name (I just put up some orbs in gettysburg the other day so I wanted to see if you have anything spooky on your site) lol

I thought I heard something about a punk ass rabbit! How funny!

Maybe you can mix it and put some house music on it and make a music video. (Hey, maybe the kids would like to do that! Of course, that would probably kill the hampster that runs your computer...hee hee)

What does it mean if I understood Atlee right away, and needed to show it to each and every one of those in my household - dare I admit it, several times each?!

Sincerely,
a fellow "punk-ass rabbit" owner
