Just days before a visit from my sister and her family, my mom begins pestering me about nudging my sister to accept yogurt in her life.
“Can you get her to eat yogurt? It’s good for her, but she just don’t like eating it.”
First and foremost, how do I coax an adult to change her eating habits? Isn’t it a little too late now? Furthermore, she is my elder sister. The possibilities of rainbow changing colors are higher in comparison to my sister’s hatred towards yogurt.
Why bother wasting time, no?
Props to my little nephew who loves his daily dose of yogurt. I know, it’s mind boggling! So proud of him I guess parents can try learning a little or two from their children.
We are already missing this cute face way too much. At a tender age of 2, this guy has a lot of opinion, a total goofball with levels of energy that is almost unfathomable.
And who wouldn’t want to cuddle this cheeky monkey?
Being chased by him and coax into playing almost felt like a good torture. We were always left huffing and puffing for breath. Love him so much
Alright sister. In an effort not to make you guys feel unwanted, we do miss the times we got to spend together. It sucks living so far apart, but I know we’ll see each other soon.
Meantime, give the bunny a hug from us two
Dare I entice you with a bowl of parfait? No? Never?
Well…. why bother. I’ve given up a loooooong time ago.
