I just have to share this.
For the sheer heck of it, I put a piece of lettuce on Bright Eyes' plate of dinner tonight. See here for some background on his eating habits.
He usually has the same thing every night because it's easier. Sometimes I add something new, but he usually worries loudly about it and gets rid of it straight away.
Tonight, however, he said, "Yummy lettuce" and put it straight in his mouth.
The joy didn't last long though... he pulled it out again after the taste hit his tongue and said, "yuckky taste. Yuck." We put it on another plate but left it on the table, and he was fine.
I can't believe it!
