Mind if I brag a bit?

It appears my 21 month old is on his way to being an awesome hound!

Last night we went out for Mexican. Love the resto, but their salsa is very inconsistent heat wise. My friend, who loves heat, said last night's was a bit much for her. My son, on the other hand, took a monstrous spoonful and crammed it into his mouth!

We were both expecting screams, lots of crying, maybe worse. Instead he just sat there. His cheeks turned bright red and heat tears streamed down his face. I offered a sip of water and he took a drop. Total trooper.

I asked if it was good and he said "Yeah!" and took a second helping.

What a great lil' pup!

    I love it! I've got one picky eater who wouldn't try salsa.....and my 2 yr old, who has no fear. She eats stuff that's "too spicy" for my wfe. I think I'll keep her.....she's gonna be a hound when she grows up.

      My 5-year old loves tofu and sour pickles. Most adults are amazed at the tofu part as my daughter will clamor for more

        Asian kids eat tofu and soy products all the time....it's really not that amazing at all.....unless s/he ate stinky tofu and asked for more.......:0)

      Congratulations! I would be proud, too!

      My 10-year-old daughter is an adventurous eater, which makes me quite happy. Unfortunately, one of the few things she won't eat is Mexican. I am not sure what the deal is, but I keep trying.

      That is such a cute story! Thanks for sharing.

        One of my former co-workers told of his then toddler daughter deciding she liked garlic-stuffed olives and stinky cheeses. He was glad to have her so open-minded about food choices but said it was a bit disconcerting to have an angel-faced little towhead giving you a kiss and knocking you backwards with her buffalo breath.

          Huzzah! My 26 month old loves all things sour, so when we find something he doesn't like, we just put vinegar on it and he'll eat it. Here's to hoping they stay this way.
