All My Birthdays and Christmases!

I'm still in shock and maybe it's because I didn't see it with my own eyes, so I still can't quite believe it. But I am more than elated to announce that boy wonder ate (yes folks you read right, 'ate' as in consumed via his own mouth)... five half tea spoons of petit filou yogurt at school today!

This may be a flash in the pan (or in this case the 'yogurt pot') but it could also be the start of something truly miraculous. I don't dare to hope...

Now if that doesn't cheer you up, I don't know what will.

Cheers
Ann

I can't believe what I am reading one half teaspoon yes but five ! Wow. Knowing how long you have waited, it is amazing. I am really thrilled and indeed very very cheered up,

This is incredible news!

I know the joy of watching a 3-month old baby take it's first mouthful of 'solids' but to have a 6-year old take his first mouthful of food, must be something else!

One small step for Rory, one giant leap for the whole family!

I'm thrilled for everyone and especially, for boy wonder.

Are we all allowed to celebrate?

I don't quite know what to do with myself - he's still refusing to eat at home so it feels strange not to be witnessing it. Maybe a little tipple to celebrate and when I witness it with my own eyes we'll have a right knees up!

I know , I know ... it's not easy to be French , these days !

But I'm a good one and I'm not keen on soccer , I prefer rugby ...

Anyway , I'm kind of proud "petits filous" might do the trick for Rory, not only for the meaning but also because all French kids just love these yogurts ...

Don't worry dear Anita , you're gonna see it with your own eyes and it will be such a treat .

Bises à tous et vive les petits filous ...

PS : je savais que ce petit homme serait un gourmet !

Thanks Vero - I had forgotten that 'Petit Filou' literally means 'Little Rogue", which in this case is very apt indeed!

Hi Ann,
Sorry to only be coming back to you now. I haven't really got the blog up and running yet - it was a test run and hopefully in the new year I will commit to it properly. My email address is dempseymail@sky.com - looking forward to hearing from you.
Hope everyone is well,
Sharon x

'Fraid I can't take any credit for this: it's all down to boy wonder, an amazing special needs assistant and a very lovely school!
