View Full Version : A RAW Mothers Day gift..early
04-30-2008, 10:56 AM
So I just had to share something incredibly awesome that happened today...I am making my green smoothie and all of the sudden my 7 yearold daughter says "I have to write this down...Mom tell me what you put in your Green Smoothie..."
I say oranges....pineapple.....banana....spinach...
She then says ..."ok. Thanks."
I then hear her whisper to my 6 year old son..."we can make this for breakfast for Mom on Mothers Day..."
I get a little teary eyed...am i stupid emotional or what?
They know about my Raw challenge....
I don't know...with all of the posts about kids eating Raw and watching other kids eat SAD and what not...I needed to put positive spin on it...
My kids are watching, they are learning, and they are doing...and for now that is enough for me!

That is incredibly sweet and, no, you're not too emotional to get teary eyed. It is wonderful that they care enough to do that for you and to pay attention to your likes. Sigh. Little ones are the best! :)
That warms my heart. :)
yes, they are absorbing this. When I was younger my mother was very health conscious and raised us to be too. It definitely makes an impact at an early age. And by taking care of yourself, you're making it possible for you to be the best mom you can be for them.
Thanks for sharing your story!

Aw, that's soooo cute. My children are absorbing also. I have a 9 year old who is trying to be raw. I have a 23 year old who is 100% raw, a 15 year old who is asking a lot of questions about what foods are good even though he has made fun of me for the last 5 years and a 21 year old who has NO desire to even try even though she is constanly sick, has precancerous cells in her breast and high AST and ALT levels - 500. Anyway, that 's not the point.
My nine year old was in school in health class and the teacher was telling the children how important it was to get their recommended glasses of milk each day to get enough calcium and have strong bones. My son raised his hand and said, "Milk is not good for you, you should'nt drink it, you can all your calcium for greens. The teacher asked him where he heard this and he said "my mom is a raw foodist". The teacher told him that it was my OPINION and I should keep my opinions to myself. My son said to me, "Too bad she does'nt know the truth"

WOW...that is one reason why I want to study nutrition...to learn what the "government" thinks and then unlearn it...you know?..but that is really cool that he had the confidence enough to speak up. Thats great! :)

That makes two post of some great kids out there... doing something sweet for mom and hearing what mom is saying and questioning it. You be proud of those kids, you can tell that they sure are proud of their moms!!
