How Homeschool Moms Have Fun

Mom: "Time for dinner!"

Kid: "What's that?"

Mom: "Salad"

Kid: "No, what's that?" (points at strange new food)

Mom: "Avocado, it's native to Mexico."

Kid: "The water is bad in Mexico." (silently decides the food must be bad too)

Kid: "And what are those?"

Mom: "Peppers and grape tomatoes"

Silence as the kid stares at the salad.

Mom: "If you eat all your salad you can have whatever else you want for dinner."

More silence. Finally the kid reluctantly eats, leaving the avocado.

Mom: "See, it's not that bad."

Kid: "I only ate the lettuce."

Mom: "Uh, yeah, that was spinach."

Kid: (mouth drops on the table) "You did that on purpose!"

Mom: (while doing the happy dance) "Mwah, ha, ha, ha! Now who's the smart one?"

Please assure A that I will smuggle him food. Obviously he will never trust you to provide it again.

Hmmm, distract him with wierd international vegetable (or is it a fruit?) to get him to eat his spinach? Nice!
