I am constantly telling Pumpkin, who is a notoriously picky eater, to chew her food thoroughly before swallowing.

“Small bites,” I’m always reminding her, “then swallow.”

This morning, I sat at the table, head in my hands—exhausted and with a very long to-do list running through my mind, while Pumpkin sat eating her breakfast.

“Small bites. Small bites.”

I looked up to see her instructing her spoonful of cereal, before putting it in her mouth.

I guess I need reminding too, sometimes!

Do your kids sometimes offer their own nuggets of wisdom when you need it most?

When she’s not blogging, playing wife, mom (to her daughters Pumpkin + Peanut), international politics aficionado, or wannabe fashionista, Jen can be found soaking in the natural beauty of the outdoors on walks as an avid nature lover. And yes, talking—a lot.
