Eat Yer Veggies

(at restaurant)

Tiny Boy, maybe age 3: “Mommy, he’s really tall! Look, Mommy! He’s really tall!”

Mommy: “Yes, he is. Now let’s concentrate on your food.”

TB: “He’s really tall. He’s really tall. Is he a giant? Is he a giant?”

Mommy: “I’m so sorry, sir.”

Me: “No, I’m not a giant. But when I was little, I ate lots of veggies and they made me extra big and strong. Do you eat vegetables?”

TB: (nods, eyes wide)

Me: “Good. Eat your veggies and you’ll grow up big and strong like me.”

TB: “I will.”
