A Turning of the Tables
A few weeks ago a friend went away for a few weeks and so her kids came here for sleepovers a couple of nights. Her kids are 11 and 6 and are both vegetarians. We also invited the 6 year-old boy that lives a few doors down to stay over too. The first morning at breakfast the 11 year-old girl says to the neighbour kid, "You know...you're the only one here who eats meat". Followed by a "So, what vegetables do you like to eat?" Apparently, the boy only eats chickens and potatoes, which just invited more comments. It final got to the point that my dh had to step in and say, "Leave the kid alone".
I love the neighbour boy. He's very sweet and likes to write books about puppies, but I do have to admit I was a wee bit enjoying the show.
