My kids take gummy bear vitamins. Hell, I take gummy bear vitamins. They rock. But since they are indeed medication and are cunningly like candy, I keep them high in the cabinet, and instill a haunting fear of overdose in my children about them. So much so that I got a text from Kelly during the Taylor Swift concert, which looked something like this:
H n E want gummy vite. H says 1x day. can't remember if he had with bfast. Need clarification. Respond STAT.
So yesterday evening, Harrisen comes into the kitchen, with a serious look on his face.
H: I wish my taste buds could talk.
K: Why is that, buddy?
H: So they could help me remember if I had a gummy bear today.
It was so precious, I convinced him I could hear them, and he was "all clear" for a dose of the good stuff.
I don't think he bought for a minute that I could hear his taste buds, but he was sure happy to get his vitamin.
