I recently took Alex for her well-check (90% weight; off-chart in height--big girl). I dropped Lucas off at a friends house. When I returned she said, I had to tell you, my boys were eating some of their gingerbread houses and offered some to Lucas and he said "'no I can't have sugar'. So I just wanted to let you know he did a great job following your rules."
I sat there for a minute stumped and amused... that isn't one of our rules I informed her. He probably just didn't think he would like the gingerbread so that is what he said.
But maybe he really is learning that sugar isn't the best.
On Saturday after everyone did a great job cleaning, we went out for ice cream and got some donuts while we were out too. That evening after dinner the following conversation ensued:
Eric: "Maybe we'll even have donuts for breakfast tomorrow."
Lucas: "You're tricking! We can't do that!"
Eric: "No I'm serious."
Lucas: "But donuts are too sugary for breakfast."
Eric: "Donuts are sugary, but just one donut along with something healthy would be okay this one time."
Lucas: "Yes cinnamon & sugar toast and a donut would be great!"
