AH HA!! A light bulb moment...

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 emoticon

    What a great light bulb. I wish I would get full as fast as the kids I am learning slowly again though.

    Yes, my Mom use to tell me all the time to clean my plate. That was always the way it was when I was home. We have learned a lot since then. We were much more active long ago and now most children sit in front of the TV or play with their DS while they're home. A lot of children just aren't getting outdoors to get exercise and better their health. It is so sad and the parents don't encourage their children to get active.
