Advice from a 5 year old
Wednesday, April 14, 2010
One of our dancers brings her 5 year old to class every week. Jada thinks I'm really cool because I play with her. Last night she looked at me very seriously and said "If I ask you something, I don't want you to get mad, ok?" I said ok and she then asked me why I was so fat. I told her it's because I eat too much and because I don't eat healthy foods. She then told me, in no uncertain terms, that I was to start eating healthy foods: carrots, seaweed, mushrooms, california rolls, rice and fruit. She then told me that california rolls were the BEST because they have rice and seaweed and veggies!
She then asked me to draw a map to my place and she took it to her mom and told her she had to drive her there so she could make sure I was eating healthy meals.
She relented a bit at the end though - she very seriously told me I could have "a little bit - and I mean a very little bit - of chocolate".
This kid is hooked on seaweed wrappers for sushi - she eats them like candy. I swear she's going to be the next Jillian Michaels.
