Sign number 1–Change needed: sheets
I changed the sheets on our bed. Admittedly, these probably don’t get changed as often as they should. The proof? When my daughter walked into the room, saw the folded sheets ready to put on the bare bed and asked, “Who peed?”
Clearly, her only experience of sheets being changed is when someone has wet the bed.
Sign number 2–Change needed: diet
At Costco we tried samples of juice “made from fruits and vegetables” the person filling the cups told us cheerfully. Worth a shot, we figured. The first one was that healthy green color that in any other context would be described as unhealthy. It had a predictable kale-ish flavor. Bleh. The second cup was of a deep cherry that made me salivate just looking at that lush redness. Mmm…fruit juice, I surmised. Sadly, it tasted instead of strained beets. My four-year-old eagerly tried it also only to comment with disgust, “It tastes like PLANTS!”
I probably should be introducing more vegetables into these kids’ diets.
Go ahead, parents. Be honest. What changes do you need to make around your house or with your parenting? You’re safe here.
