Don’t Ever Tell Your Children Anything

by doodaddy on October 23, 2008

There’s a nice salad station at the new California Academy of Sciences cafeteria, and we were standing there surrounded by dozens as the chef put beets on top of my wife’s salad.

My wife said (as you do, in such situations), “Look, Boo: Beets!”

Boo replied loudly (as she does, ditto), “PINK POOP!”

Sometimes the line between “cute” and “disgusting” is surprisingly thin.

I bet beet salad sales took a sharp decline.

Love it! Ronen’s standard reply to any mention of beets is a loud “beets make your peepee red!”

We really should take these kids on the road…

@Rattling the Kettle – Yeah, it’s probably more a girl thing to notice one’s poop color over one’s pee color, not generally seeing one’s pee arc across the floor. They make a perfect duo!

@orlund – You think? Isn’t that secretly why we all eat beets?
