It's most gratifying to me when my 10-yr-old DS4 tries something he thinks he'll hate, and with his mouth full he gives a huge thumbs up and makes yummy sounds. And last night, tho we're currently in a huge fight, DH tasted the amaretto peach pecan preserves I made and said they were incredible. It didn't melt my frozen heart, but I felt victorious over the problems I had with the preserves.
