Something quite embarrassing happened to me today...ok this is it, basically I try to cut my kids sugar intake all the time so as to avoid sugar flare, tooth decay and obesity. Soda, packed juices and chocolates are consumed minimally by my kids. Today we had a guest and I offered her a pack of cold juice, some ice cubes and a glass cup.
I instruct my kids never to ever ask a guest for drinks when offered to them, the older 3 are very much aware of the consequences of begging at all but not my last kid who can barely understand an ordinary statement without mimicking it in her own baby language. Before I knew what was going on she brought a big water bottle of almost one litre to ask my guest for some fruit juice, I gave my kid the disapproving look but she went on to ask her for some fruit juice I even tried to cajole her to go get hers from the refrigerator but she was hell bent on having some of the guest's fruit juice. My kid was finally offered some fruit juice and that left me embrassed.
Every mother wants to portray a picture of a perfect home of well mannered kids but seriously it ain't easy as been imagined. It's only the grace of God that guides us in training our children so that they can stop falling our hand...lol. who can translate the phrase: "pikin fall her mama hand" to correct English please? I've been trying to crack my brain to get it right.
