A Daddy’s Double Standard

February 14, 2007 @ 7:53 am | Filed under:

First child: "Refined sugar shall not touch her lips! Until age two at the earliest! Possibly age three! Nothing but natural sweeteners for my daughter: bring on the homemade fruit leather and rubbery whole wheat muffins sweetened with apple juice!"

Fifth child:
"Does my widdle snookie-wookie want a taste of yummy  yummy marshmallow fluff? Mmm, she likes it! Here, have a chocolate-chip muffin!"

    Oh, I know *g* My eldest (now 9) was sugar-free for a couple of years, then I caved. My youngest (now nearly 2) has been partaking of ice cream and chocolate for a year. It’s much easier to quarantine the eldest from the wicked world of sugar, but not quite so easy when there is a Big Sister with a definite sweet tooth in the house!
