Everything in Moderation?

Trey thinks some pretty deep thoughts sometimes
or at least thoughts I wouldn't expect him to think.

(I feel like Dr. Seuss!)

Tonight he came in my room
and asked,
"Mom, if you eat too
much of something, like candy,
then it's bad for you, right?"

"Yes, it is," I said.

"So," he continues,
"if you eat too much beans
or something that's healthy for you,
that's bad for you too?
Like, if you never ever eat candy or sweets?"

I thought about it for a few seconds.

Life without candy or sweets,
ever,
would suck.

Healthy or not.

So I told him that eating healthy food
with candy or sweets thrown in
here and there to balance it all out was fine.

He was satisfied with this answer,
dove head first off the bed
and headed downstairs.

I wonder if this had anything to do
with the giant strawberry trifle
I made for dessert tonight?

Blame Paula Deen.

I blame Paula Deen for a lot of things including Bubba's Key Lime Pie. Strawberry trifle sounds pretty good too though...
