“I gonna lay off food for a while.” -Lucas (2014, 5 years old)   Hearing this from my 5-year-old beanpole of a son was a definite “Wait what!?” moment. You see, saying “going to” implies that one isn’t already doing it. Since birth.   – Previous My Kid Just Said What a kid would do […]

So, wouldn’t the overarching concept behind an effective diet be to reduce the amount of food available or to suppress the desire for it, or simply remove its deliciousness? Maybe not, but whatever, right?! If you choose the Kid-Made Diet, you’ll have no problem […]

“Garwic smewws wike skunk and poop.” -Lucas (2013, 4.5 years old)  I love garlic, but I can understand that it’s a bit showy as far as smells go. The funny thing about my son’s description is that I had to wonder for a sec whether this meant he didn’t like the smell of garlic. Some […]
