My 5 year old grandson, Landon lost his first tooth today. I showed Julius a pic of it on FB and he said. "So, I've lost more than him." I said, "That's not nice. This isn't a competition, Julius." He gives me a shocked look and says. "It isn't?! Well, it is now."

Julius, who has not missed a meal since birth and has eaten his way through today wants a can of Progresso chicken noodle soup. Julius: Can I have soup? Me: You've already had lunch. Julius: Can I eat it for dinner? Me: I suppose you could, but you might want to find out what your father is making first. That seemed to appease him for about 15 minutes Julius: Why can't I just have it as a snack?... Me: Because you already had a snack, besides what about lunch tomorrow. If you eat soup for a snack, you'll have nothing to eat tomorrow. Julius: Please. Me: No. Julius: Pretty please. Me: No. Julius: Pretty please with a cherry on top. Me: N-O. Julius: Oh my gosh! This soup has been my dream forever! How about I just eat this and I won't ask for anything else to eat. Me: *snorts* Julius: *pouting*
