Sharing Juice

This morning I was packing my 5 year old’s lunch for school, and I realized I was out of the juice boxes I normally put in his lunch.

So I told him I’d put one of “my” juice boxes in there (he knows mommy has a stash of her own for emergencies.)

He said. “No, mommy. I don’t need a drink; I don’t want to take one of yours, because I know you need them if your blood sugar gets too low.”

Did I mention he’s FIVE?

Proud mommy.

And I assured him I had enough to share a box with him. 😉
