Saturday, May 05, 2012
I just love it when I sit here thinking and all of a sudden a light bulb goes off and I'm like DUH!!!
We were eating dinner tonight and I kept telling my kids...EAT!! CLEAN YOUR PLATE!! FINISH YOUR VEGGIES!! and so on and it finally hit me! IT'S OK NOT TO EAT IT ALL!!! Who better to know that then a child? When they are full, they stop eating...and us as parents tell them...EAT, CLEAN YOUR PLATE...and ya wonder why childhood obesity is on the rise!! I mean how many of us can remember our parents telling us to "clean your plate"? Mine use to tell me...it's clean plate club...and Santa, Easter Bunny...or whatever olther holiday it was I wouldn't get any TOYS if I didn't clean my plate off...SERIOUSLY!!
Ya gotta love the
