We've been having several conversations with the boys about junk food. We've said that while it is ok to eat junk food on occasion, we can't eat it all the time because it will make our bodies sick and unhealthy. They seem to get the concept, although it is not their favorite topic as it limits their intake of the things they see as essential to their survival, things like fruit snacks, candy, chocolate milk, etc.
Yesterday, as we were driving to Dan's work to do the kid swap (I had to go to an evening work meeting), we passed a McDonalds and Caedon immediately launched into the spiel about how hungry he was, how he couldn't wait any longer to eat...you get the picture. "Caedon, I already made dinner for you guys at home. You are going to eat with Daddy when you get home." I reminded him (he had been talking about how good the food in the crockpot smelled all afternoon). "Awwwwhhhhh Mooooooommmmm!" he whined, "McDonalds is a better cook than you!!"
