Yes, I cut it into bite sized pieces with my handy dandy pizza cutter.

What did you have for lunch?
I am not a fan of my kids eating fast food. I do however let them. When I need an easy out, when we are on the road, and sometimes just because. Whenever they bite into their french fries a little piece of me cringes, but I move past it and let them. Good, bad, I don't know. Today is different. Today every fiber in my body rejoiced as I watched him bite, chew up, and swallow his burger. Not one gag, not one cough. Alex ate half of a double, yes, a double cheeseburger today. It was not pureed, and not a part of me is sad that he had fast food for lunch. The child ate half a double cheeseburger. The child who aspirated, who gagged at stage 2 baby food, the child who at one time took an entire day to down a nutrigrain bar. The same child I have been pureeing food for going on three and a half years.
