When did he get so smart?

Son: Mom, just out of curiosity, what's so important about a soda?
Me: (sigh) Nothing really, it's the principle of it.

Yep, I got schooled by my 9 year old. A couple days ago I put a Mt. Dew in the fridge to get cold. Yesterday I went to grab it and it was missing. My husband drank it. He thought it had been sitting around for too long and was fair game. So, he took it and drank it and didn't think much about it. I've been whining about it since.

Darn that kid sometimes. But, on the better side: This shows that they're learning what's really important in life, and a stupid soda isn't important.

  • He sounds like my 6 yr old. Her new phrase to say is "Isn't it more important that everyone's safe & healthy". Yeah, she's a smarty-pants.

  • We learn a lot from our kids, even when we wish they'd keep their mouths shut. *Smile.*

  • Yeah, it kind of pissed me off that he stole my drink and didn't even bother to ask if it was ok.

    All that aside though, the underlying message that my kids know that a soda is NOT something important in life, but hugs and kisses and I love you ARE just warms me to my toes. As frustrating and trying as they can be, I'm raising them right.
