Got Milk?

Everyone will tell you that Ian looks like Rachel. Today though, he looked like me when faced with the thought of drinking milk (if you've seen me, you know I've never been a fan of milk). After eating his whole lunch, I said "all done". This is the look I got.




I just thought he was thirsty (For some reason he rarely takes a drink until he has finished eating his food). So I put his glass of milk in front of him. I guess I was mistaken.




I proceeded to aske him what was wrong and continued to try and sell him the milk.





Needless to say, I never closed the sale. So, in holding true to customer satisfaction, I decided to give him some juice. As I was pouring the juice I was thinking ahead to what I would do if it was not the milk/juice factor. I walked up to him, took the milk away and replaced it with the sweet concoction of 1/2 water and 1/2 juice. There was a brief moment of contemplation. Then......





I know a growing boy needs his milk and I always told myself that I would never give into a desire of his if I knew it was not the best thing for him. I guess that when I told myself that, I wasn't thinking that giving in would ever produce good results. After seeing the absolute joy of my son, it's evident that the result of this parental decision was nothing but good.
