I heard it on T.V.

A couple of weeks ago all of my kids were having tummy trouble.

In the midst of everyone being sick, my older son Lil' Expert said "Mom, I think I'm lactose intolerant."

I said, "Where did you here that?"

He said, "I heard it on T.V. and when I ate a piece of cheese it went right through me!"

In a day or so he was fine, no more lactose intolerance. I thought it was so funny my seven year old was now self diagnosing based on what he saw on a T.V. commercial. The amazing thing was he remembered the word and used it mostly in the right context.

It is incredible what kids pick up, and a good reminder to be aware of the influences all around them. They really are little sponges.

They just absorb everything. It's crazy. I have about two years before my kids have me outsmarted completely.
