I Will Eat it All

My son wanted to make cookies the other day, but he thinks we cannot make them too often because daddy will eat them all.  He must have overheard my wife and I speaking about this and her telling me she doesn’t want me to eat too many.  

It bothers me when I hear my kids say these things, and then I get angry with my wife because I know they probably heard it from her.  I eat very healthy, over 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.  But deep down I know she’s right.  When we make cakes and cookies, I find it very hard to eat a reasonable portion.  I rationalize that since it is home cooked, it must be healthy; a homemade cookie is always better than a prepackaged one.

I need to work on this. I want my kids to know it is OK to eat the occasional treat but not to eat ten cookies at one time.  Two steps forward, one step back.
