Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

Blue icing, white sugar - SCANDAL!

Ok, anyone who has been around us much at all knows that Anna eats tons of fresh fruits and vegetables and always has. It's all she has known so she doesn't know the difference. Of course we let her eat most anything but we do limit things that don't contribute to health and we encourage those things that are good for a growing body.

So in my attempt to encourage healthy foods I told her one day that things like raw vegetables and fruit make you beautiful and things like white sugar make you ugly. Ok, I had no idea the affect that would have but she literally became obsessed asking us about every item on her plate and every thing on EVERY grocery shelf. BUT, here's the catch in order not to spoil the fun of childhood and because she had gotten to where if you told her something did have white sugar in it she would REFUSE to eat it, we just sort of left out the fact that things like birthday cake, cupcakes, and chocolate chip cookies do have the scandalous white sugar in them. I mean COME ON a girls gotta have some fun!

So last night after a super fun day of throwing rocks in the pond, playing on the playground, shopping for fall shoes and going to Central Market for dinner with some of our best friends we ended the night with an extra yummy Central Market Cookie Monster cupcake (he even had a giant Oreo in his mouth). She LOVED it!

The headlines read: "Outspoken anti-sugar activist caught DEVOURING cupcake"

I have the proof: See attached picture of smiling blue face!!
