Things may be looking a little brighter these days for my little Boston man. We decided to lay down the law and get serious about what Boston eats....because let's face it, it obviously was affecting not only his health and his weight, but his teeth as well. So we decided no more are the days of making a separate meal for Boston to eat, or letting him eat whatever he wants just so he will be getting something in his little body. He will now be eating what we eat or he will go hungry. We started this new "law" this week and he as done amazingly well. He ate sloppy joes one day, loaded quesadillas, and a whole peanut butter and jelly sandwich one day for lunch. I have also been giving him bananas, yogurt, carrots....this may sound like nothing...or like normal foods that kids would like, but you don't understand. Boston literally eats nothing. He usually won't even try something new. So I am very proud of my little man. I know if he can learn to try new things and eat things that are better for him (or eat anything at all) we will all be much happier.
Oh and one more thing. We talked to another dentist and he assured us that the work on Boston's teeth does need to be done, but we have decided to try it in the office (this will probably save us 1500.00 separate from what we will spend for his dental work). They will give him valium which will make him really relaxed and tired and then see how it goes. I actually think he is going to do ok. I feel a little better about the situation...only a little though :) .
