We were eating supper–steak and German potato salad. My little two-year-old boy was happily eating his potato salad. Evidently he and I were the only two that cared for it. My daughter Joy was impressed that he would eat it.
“He’s going to be like Mama and love potatoes,” I said.
“Eww, he likes vegetables!” Joy exclaimed.
“Well then, maybe he’ll be like his daddy and love vegetables,” I said.
“No, he won’t. Remember when he threw his peas all over?” (Peals of laughter.)
Having thought about it for a minute, I said, “No, the truth is Daddy likes the IDEA of vegetables. He doesn’t actually like to eat them all that much.”
Jason didn’t say anything for a few minutes. Then he started laughing.
“What’s funny?” I wanted to know.
“What you said about the vegetables. It’s true!”
He really likes to be healthy, but I guess he’d never thought of it this way. I love to hear him laugh. My day is complete!
