Our daughter stopped for a visit yesterday morning with the twins she cares for during the day. (The adorable little munchkins -- a boy and a girl -- turn 2 years old tomorrow.)
They joined us for lunch which was warmed-up leftover meat loaf, potato casserole and freshly cooked broccoli. The twins have always been eager little eaters of just about anything set before them, but are especially fond of broccoli whether it's raw or cooked.
Forkful after forkful (and sometimes handful) of broccoli disappeared into their wee maws until their dishes were devoid of green at which time they both asked for more, please. To this, Bopee (their name for our daughter) told them, "Eat some of your meat and potatoes and then you can have more broccoli."
Now I ask you, how many parents/caregivers of young children would be ever so pleased to have the need to speak that sentence?
