“Mom, can I please have my vitamins?”

Right! Like you’d ever have a kid begging you for vitamins. Yet this morning I was taking a quick look at my emails and semi-ignoring my daughter, when it finally occurred to me what she was nagging me for: her vitamins. I couldn’t help but smile and say, “Of course dear! Here you go.”

It’s kind of like your kid begging you for green beans, one of those moments when you feel so proud of your mothering abilities. But then you realize it’s only because the new Voots vitamins taste like candy, not that you’ve instilled responsible nutrition habits in your child at a surprisingly young age. Darn.
