Growing Up Sweet



Riding along after our trip to the farmer's market, four year old Sebastian and I are talking about what a great haul of fruits and veggies we had. I told him when we got home I was going to make some juice out of carrots, celery and swiss chard, and it would be very healthy.

He chipped in, "The veggies will help me grow!"

Ah! a teachable moment! "Yes," I replied eagerly. "Because when you eat lots of fruits and vegetables, you grow up healthy!"

"And when you eat all the stuff with sugar in it......" Sebastian struggled with imparting any information which might preclude his having dessert later......."you grow up SWEET!" he concluded, and we both cracked up.

  3. Perfect! I think the teachable moment went the other way. I love this. I hope he does grow up as sweet as he is now.
