Brett, the family pet?
In many American households, kids who are picky eaters sneak their food to the family pet. In the Mozo household, home of the King of Picky Eaters (2-year-old Bryce), it's a different story.
Today after picking Bryce up from Mother's Day Out, I stopped by McDonald's and bought him a Happy Meal. (I do this on occasion when I am out of ideas of things to try to feed him.)
I got him settled at the table with his cheeseburger and fries, and I put baby Brett in the high chair nearby with a couple fries for him. I began sorting mail and shortly after, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Bryce actually ate some of his food! (He usually just plays with it and may take a bite or two.)
But if things sound too good to be true, they usually are. Moments later I caught him red-handed. I laughed to myself I watched as he sneakily placed fry after fry on Brett's high chair tray, and Brett ate them! Then I grabbed my camera.
As you can see, Bryce soon realized he had been caught! (Notice the growing pile of fries on Brett's tray.)
Oh, well. Maybe he'll eat when he goes to kindergarten.
