Wherin we prove we are not mature enough to have four children.

As you all know, it is an ongoing battle to get Ben to eat. Anything. Continuing on this weeks bribery theme, I will confess that I occasionally let him have some time on PBSKids.com if he eats all of his lunch at school. Today, he came home from school and said,

"Can I play on the computer, mom? I ate all my yogurt!"

I looked in his lunch bag and said, "No Ben! You didn't eat anything but yogurt!"

At which point he started convulsing in laughter. I stood there bewildered. Finally he controlled himself enough to say,

"Mo-om! What's butt yogurt?"

At which point Shane and I, in our profound maturity, started convulsing in laughter as well. The worst thing we could do, since he proceeded to say "Butt yogurt, butt yogurt" over and over again until we controlled ourselves enough to control him as well.

LOL!

+1 WMP for encouraging him by laughing. Now just hope he repeats it somewhere inappropriate for bonus points.
