I'm not quite sure whether this was a good mother moment or a bad one, I'll let you decide. It just struck me as funny at the time:
Tonight our family was planning on going to go out to pizza with my mom and Barry.Zach and I made the executive decision to feed our kids some left over acorn squash before we left the house so they could get in a vegetable before their fun meal of white flour, red meat, cheese and high-fructose corn syrup. As we sat there at the kitchen table our children struggled a little bit with trying to choke down their portions of the sticky orange mush. (Zach and I had our fair portions too) Our two younger children may have even gagged a little at which point I said to David, "If you gag, just wash it down with some milk." I know, I'm a mean mom, but guess what- they ate it- and we all left ten minutes later to go to the Brick Oven together. It was a great meal served with a little less guilt because of our pre-dinner preparations. The end.
