Goldfish, M&M's and Cookies!!!!

Sitting across the aisle on the flight this morning were a mother and two children. She kept them entertained with Goldfish, M&M's and cookies. The children were quiet for the entire five hour flight. They were also a "bit" overweight. So was mom.

Sitting two rows back was a mother, father and their child. On both of my trips to the little boy's room I noticed they were offering the child fruit. He wasn't interested in the fruit. He cried a lot during the entire five hour flight. But he was skinny. So are mom and dad.

Do we applaud the parents for taking a stand against feeding their child crap?
Do we applaud the other woman for giving her child crap so 200 other people didn't have to suffer?

But even deeper.......Some people think weight is genetics. Maybe it is. Maybe it is not. But I still think being a good role model for those we love is key.

Who have you been a role model for? Or are you a roll model?

And to add insult to injury, the kids who eat crap might be smarter:
