Baby Brother Opposes Candy (Kind Of)

We’ve been watching a lot of documentaries about healthy foods. The movies show how vegetables and fruits nourish the body, while processed foods, fast food, and candy cause problems (weight gain, and so on). I wasn’t sure whether Baby Brother was understanding the documentaries, but we answered his questions while watching, and he seemed interested rather than bored, so all seemed okay.

Today I realized he was totally watching and understood more than I thought. He came up to me and said:

“Mom, the people who make candy don’t really care about the people who buy it. They just care about money. And eventually they’re going to lose all their money.”

And I asked why.

He said, “I mean when they die.”

Whoa. He’s thinking further down the line than I was, but I guess he’s right about that.
