Before I had my son, I was with visiting my friend one day and went along with her on her errands. We stopped at the grocery store to pick up some things for dinner and as we were going through the aisles her kids kept asking for all sorts of things. After many times refusing she finally gave in. So we head to the checkout with dinner and loads of sugar filled junk (the kids picked those things out!) I remember thinking we didn’t grow up like that! What is she doing? She must have known exactly what I was thinking because she turns to me and says: “Don’t say a word. My husband and I deal with this all the time and sometimes you just give in because you’re tired. I know better. But you don’t get it yet. You will. Just wait until you have yours!”
Can you relate to this? I think most of us can. Let’s face it, we all start off with this beautiful little life entrusted in our care, determined that we are going to give them the BEST THINGS OF LIFE (including foods)…but then, what happens?
