"But it has the same ingredients as pizza!" I declared. "It has wheat and sauce. The only thing missing is cheese!"
Out comes the mozzarella to appease him. I also gave Woodjie the box and told him that there was a lot of information allll about the pasta on the box. He read the ingredients and the blurb about how this pasta is the best ever, glanced at the recipes, all that stuff. It's still not his fave thing but he's managing.
PS. Yes, I had Woodjie remove his shirt at the dinner table because sauce stains and he's still on the little side of being a big kid. :)
