Peer Pressure

Last night Elliott's buddy Jack spend the night. The boys had a wonderful time (and me too actually!) Running, shrieking with joy, and laughing filled the house (with an occasional mini crisis of some sort over a toy or something).

But something remarkable happened...I think it was Elliott's first instance of really being influenced by a friend and giving into peer pressure!

We had avacado with our dinner last night and offered the boys some too. Elliott typically refuses avacado but we keep offering anyway.

Well, last night Jack just gobbled up his avacado while Elliott watched carefully. All of a sudden, Elliott decided he needed avacado too! He ate a huge chunk in seconds and maybe actually enjoyed it!

  1. I'm glad Jack used his influence for a positive outcome! Let's just hope he sticks to encouraging his friends to try veggies!
