Bet my mother never had to say this!

Tonight I said something that I was pretty sure that I would NEVER hear myself say as a mother.

Oh sure, I expected the "Get your finger out of that!", "Don't eat that-it's poop!" or even "Put that cat back outside!" But never what I heard myself say tonight...

[Get ready, now insert your best "mother/teacher/any authoritaryish figure" voice]

"You better sit back down in your chair if you want any more lettuce!"

Yep, you read that right "lettuce"-I swear the kid thinks that stuff is candy :)

apparently when I was a wee little hobbit, I had a big thing for broccoli. My mom would use it to bribe me to do just about anything!

Lettuce doesn't surprise me. :)

How funny!! I have never heard of a child actually eating lettuce, let alone liking it. Cute!!
