I had an amusing chat with my four-year-old the other day.
Me: “Andrew, I like the way you are. Can you not grow up and stay this way all the time?”
He: “I can’t!”
Me: “Why not?”
He: “Because you keep giving me milk to drink so I keep growing.”
[Note: at one point he was not a great milk drinker, and we told him if we wanted to be big like Daddy, he had to drink his milk. This evidently stuck in his mind.]
Me: “Hmmm. . . good point. Can I stop giving you milk so you can stop growing and stay this way forever?”
So folks, there you have it. I’ve divulged the secret to keep your child young and cute forever. Just stop giving them milk.
