teeth and a confession
A few weeks ago Andrew learned about teeth in school. He tells me that if you eat lots of sugar and if you don't brush your teeth, your teeth will turn yellow and fall out! He says this as he points a finger at me and uses a very serious voice.
Then later he tells me that when your teeth fall out, you put your teeth under the pillow and the tooth fairy comes and gives you money!
And gradually these two ideas came together to form one blissfully confused idea. You eat sugar, your teeth fall out, the tooth fairy comes, you get money. I had never really seen it this way before.
And that, my friends, is why we eat so much sugar. The payoff is huge.
And a confession:
Last night I wondered what I blog about today. Often I know a day or so in advance what I will probably put up, but last night I realized I didn't have anything for today. So I decided to make a cake so I could post today. And...so I could eat cake. The things I do for my readers... ;)
Today's cake: Lemon Angelfood with fresh strawberries. I was planning on making a mango sauce to go with it...but Isaac ate my mango.
