The kiddos have been learning about heart health at school, and it prompted both a recitation (which I have yet to capture on video) and a “Just Say No” discussion.

You can have a healthy heart
It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
Eat healthy stuff
Move around enough
Live tobacco free!

Me: Buddy, do you know what tobacco is?
Colt: It’s bad for you?
Me: Yep. It’s bad for you.
Colt: Like cigarettes?
Jeff: Right. Cigarettes and tobacco are bad for you.

*pause* We could see the wheels turning…

Colt: So, how do I tell the difference between ciga-rats and — regular rats?

I could tell the explanation was a real letdown.

  1. LOL!! That is wonderful! I can completely see Colt saying that, and that is definitely something I could see Cade doing. Love those sweet little boys:)

    1. He was VERY concerned, poor guy. You could just see his mind racing — wait! rats aren’t dangerous! :) Ha!
