Too Smart

We're back at ECFE once a week which can otherwise be called the Germ Factory. As much as I love taking William to "school" it doesn't come without its drawback and one of those is picking up sniffle and sneezing bugs. To give William's immune system an extra edge this year I decided to start him on some immune boosting supplements. Brian and I swear by Emergen-C whenever we feel we're coming down with something so why not give the same boost to my son?

The bottle I found at Target gives him an extra shot of Vitamin C, Zinc and Echinacea. I really don't know if it works but I figure it can't hurt.

I figured William would love it because the vitamins come in the form of a gummy bear. What kid doesn't love a gummy bear? Well, my kid apparently.

When I first gave it to him he put it in his mouth for a little while and then spit it out and placed as far away on his tray as he could.

I thought maybe because they were vitamins they didn't taste exactly like candy so I tried it myself. They tasted just like your average gummy bear to me.

I handed him another bear and said, "Here buddy, it's CANDY!"

He handed it right back, "Here go mommy."

I sighed. "How about some sugar on it?"

I licked the back of the bear and dipped it in a spoonful of sugar. If it worked for Mary Poppins...

I handed it back to William, "Mmmmm..."

He inspected it closely. He then proceeded to lick the sugar off the back and hand the bear back to me saying, "More sugar please!"

Sometimes these kids are just too smart for their own good.
