Mister left a bag of those cheerio snack mixes out. Sugar and I were sitting on the couch watching tv and Cole comes in, grabs a handful, and before shoving in his mouth he looks at me. I was getting ready to stop him, but he stopped in the nick of time.
cole: ugh - can I have these?
he grabs the bags and looks at the ingredients.
cole: this sucks - first ingredient is wheat flour
All the while I was looking at him. I smiled.
Cole stomps off and grabs a banana.
I can't help but be proud that he stopped himself before putting it in his mouth and read the label. We are only on day 5 of a diagnosis. Gone are the days of grabbing whatever he would like to without thinking of the consequence (i.e. pain).
