6 Year 'Wisdom'

While driving in the car this morning....

6YO- Mom, you need to start packing me more food for my lunch and snack.

Me- Why?

6YO- Because when I'm really hungry I eat a lot of my lunch during snack time and then I eat at lunch and there's not a lot left.

Me- But you don't eat everything I pack for you.

6YO- Sometimes I do if I like everything you send. How about I pack my own lunch?

Me- How about this, how about I pack more food in your lunch box but I will put a fruit or vegetable in your snack bag with your regular snack, and if you eat just two bites of the healthy stuff, then you can have the rest..... and I will pack more snacks and a bigger lunch for you.
LONG PAUSE....






6YO- Okay, never mind.
