Overheard at Breakfast
8 yr. old: Oh man! I forgot! I shouldn't have eatan that oatmeal. I was suppose to start the Special K challenge this morning.

Later in the day...

8 yr. old: Mom can I have one of those chocolate drinks in the fridge?
Mom: No, those are slim fast drinks your Dad is using to try and take off the few pounds he gained over the holidays.
8 yr old: Oh man! I wanted to do that with my Special K Challenge!

Perhaps this dear son has been watching to much tv over the last few days. The advertisers have managed to convince a child (who does not need to lose weight) that their products are so fantastic even he must try them. A little scary if you really think about it.

It is very scary how much influence that television has over our children. Another thing that is scary is that they believe everything that they hear and see on television! I have been trying to monitor that more. Thanks for pointing that out. Have a good day!

About Me...

Name:
Julie


I am a spontaneous, out going, daughter of the King, who is married to a wonderful guy who is a quiet, shy, non-spontaneous, scientist who also loves the Lord. Truly a match made in heaven! We fight and argue, love and laugh, every single day. I am passionate about orphan care and love to tell our story to anyone who will listen. This blog is dedicated to that journey.
