Late Breaking News

To my son Tommy,

It isn't often when I find it necessary to write a letter to you twice in one day, but today is one of those days.  Along with your vitamin taking, which has pleased us immensely, tonight you made a jump in your food challenges.  For dinner you ate a cheese sandwich.  It was just lightly toasted bread (because all our bread is frozen in the freezer at all times it seems) and two slices of Kraft American cheese.  To the world, a four year old eating a cheese sandwich seems the silliest thing to bring excitement, but anyone who knows your food history will do a little cheer for you.  Remember it is the littlest of things in lifethat bring the greatest joys, especially if it is a triumph over a very hard and long struggle.  Now to get you a new lunch box for the school year to fill with cheese sandwiches.  You are probably going to be the only man in the world that can tell a woman (your mom) to go make him a sammich and totally pull it off!

Sincerely with love from your dad,
