Today it finally happened! Something I thought would never happen.
Let me explain.
My son although 1/2 Mexican has never really "liked" Mexican food. We've offered him different Mexican foods even bribed him to try different Mexican foods, with no luck what so ever.
So today, My hubby prepared tostadas (his specialty). While he was busy making those, I made our son a PB&J sandwich, some chips, and grapes. We sat down to eat. Out of the blue my husband tore off part of his tortilla, scooped some frijoles with queso fresco and offered it to our son. We received the usual response.
"No, I don't like that." Hubby proceeded to tell him, "someday you are going to have to eat Mexican food. Whats going to happen if we go to Mexico one day? We do not eat bread there. Only tortillas!"
Hubby sat the tortilla with beans on our son's plate and said, "I'll just leave this here so you can try it."
Hubby got up from the table to bring some more warm tortillas he had heating on the comal.
Then it happened!
Our son picked it up and took a bite.
I was in shock!
I expected another usual response.... "yuck or ewww."
He took another bite and then said, "Hmmm, I like this!"
The PB&J was pushed to the side. He joined us in eating tostadas and the world was a better place!
