Chocolate. One of Julia's all-time favorite things in life. And she will fight to the finish for it every time. Two students brought a small tub of chocolate covered peanuts and since we had to drive to Lewisville to pick up some of my work things, they opened up the tub in the backseat. I told Julia to take one more and give the tub to Riley.
Julia: But I want a lot of chocolate! Riley ate a lot of chocolate.
Riley: That's because I'm bigger!
Julia: Mom, when I'm bigger, I can eat all the chocolate I want, right? I will eat ALL de chocolate!
My reply had something to do with eating healthy foods and enjoying a little bit of unhealthy foods, but that our bodies need good fuel to function well. A little bit of chocolate is totally fine, but we don't want to eat only chocolate.
