Last week my daughter got off the school bus and runs into the house. Usually she has a snack of some form before doing her homework. On this day, however, she comes to me and says "Daddy, I'm not having a snack today. I had a brownie and cookie at school because someone had a birthday and brought snacks. If I have another snack it will be too much sugar." And off she went to change her clothes and get ready to do her homework. I must say that I was a very proud father for the decision she made. Neither my wife nor I are very picky about what our kids choose for snacks as long as they aren't always choosing sugary snacks.
Then there's the cupcake my 3 year old had the other night for dessert. We made cupcakes a few days ago and needed to finish them up before they went bad. There were 4 cupcakes left, so we all had a cupcake for dessert. Here's what my 3 year old's cupcake looked like after she said she was finished.
Yep, she didn't eat any of the cake. She simply licked off the frosting and called it good! LOL!
