Show me your Muscles

I love these kids! We have been packing ready to move again on Friday and they have been so helpful putting all their things into boxes. For those of you keeping count this will be our 8th move in 5 years. Can't I just stay in one place for awhile?

Anyways, as we are packing the kids keep trying to help lift things and they say SHOW ME YOUR MUSCLES! Let me just tell you where they learned this phrase. Previously I haven't been able to get the kids to drink regular milk. They refused. However I recently learned a new trick.

One day we were eating dinner and Jackson had this feet at the edge of the table. He was trying to move the table but couldn't because it was stuck on something. Instead of telling him to put his feet down I decided to take this opportunity to encourage some milk drinking. I told him if he wanted to move the table he would need muscles. And the only way to get muscles is to drink milk. So he took a drink and then he tried to move the table again and magically he did. He thought this was AMAZING! So then he drank some more and the table moved again. Now he loves drinking "muscle milk"so he can improve those big muscles.

Score 1 for mom!
