Our Little Orchid
Today I had two appointments for our little Chanelle: a phone appt. with a preschool occupational therapist and an appt. with a dietitian. All because Chanelle is a picky eater and still does not like to eat fruits or vegetables (with the exception of some baby food), among many other foods she refuses to try.
This is hard for me to accept. I've always thought that (to an extent) picky eaters are created. But apparently this is not always the case. Chanelle is not only sensitive to taste, temperature, and texture, but to everything else you can imagine, too. Sensitive feelings, sensitive skin, sensitive immune system (?), sensitive temperament... the list goes on.
The OT I talked to today told me they have a name for these delicate children.
Incredibly sensitive and fragile, but they turn out beautiful.
I loved that!
Maybe we'll stop calling her the devil child...
