soon after my nutritional overhaul began a few months' ago, and my kids started to notice what i was eating, i had the following conversation with my youngest daughter in the supermarket as i was looking for the oatmeal:
she: mom, you eat a lot of oatmeal.
me: i know. its my favorite breakfast.
she: lilah eats a lot of oatmeal too.
me: how do you know?
she: she brings it to school for lunch.
me: wow, what a great thing to put in a lunchbox.
she: yeah, lilah comes from the land of oatmeal.
the land of oatmeal.
where everyone is well fueled and can run for hours.
and i guess its good for getting through a day of first grade too.
