This week Dawson turns four and today he got some VERY sad news. No more people food.
If you know us or Dawson - you know he is OBSESSED with food. I mean EXTREME obsession. He has pretty much eaten every food item imaginable in the last 4 years. If you even mention "sonic" - he nearly has a heart attack.
Well - unfortuanetely for him - he also has terrible allergies. They got so bad this weekend that a rash on his stomach spread to his "private parts" and they became scary swollen so I took him to the vet today. She said he is most likely experiencing food allergies and he may need to go on a vegetarian diet (death words to Dawson) (or his mom and dad for that matter). She said I could bring in the labels from everything he eats and let her look at them. I didn't dare admit that he eats anything I eat. But right then and there - I knew - he could never eat people food again if we want him to have a happy healthy life. Sometimes you just have to give tough love as a parent. When he looks at me with those sad eyes and begs for food and I don't give him any because I'm trying to do what's best from him - I kind of understand God - when I ask for things I don't recieve because He has a better plan.
The morning after...
