We went to a Mexican place that we love mainly because they are fast and have free ice cream; two necessities with Barrett.
When I was reading my menu, I noticed that on Mondays, kids eat free. Since Barrett never eats, I've never ordered him anything. Sometimes he'll eat a little rice and cheese, but it's never enough to warrant paying for his own meal.
But, since it was free, I ordered him a queso puff and rice.
When his plate came, it had a giant queso puff and tons of rice. Seriously, there was about three cups of rice on the plate. I handed him a fork, and he started eating. I mean, really eating. Barrett ate the entire puff and about two cups of rice.
Then, I got him ice cream. He ate most of it before asking to eat MORE rice and cheese. He was eating it until the moment we got up from the table.
For the first time ever, I had to say that he needed to stop eating. (I wouldn't normally stop him, but I was concerned he might puke if he ate more.)
Since we had been so successful with Barrett, Doug and I decided that we'd see if the eating would continue at home with Fisher.
He ate quite a bit, and for the second time in one night, I had to stop one of my kids from eating too much.
If the first night is an indicator, Fisher should be a much better eater than his big brother!
