Today one of my little friends was having an exceptionally hard day. Granted it was his first day back after a long winter break, and we had a bunch of high school students observing us, and the fifth graders came to read to us... so needless to say, it was a BIG day for the preschoolers.
So this little guy was very EMOTIONAL today! But the kicker was at the end of the day during our snack time I commented to him that I noticed he was still sad and that I was hoping he would feel better soon.
He then leans over to me and in a very whiny voice says, "Miss Kelly, I think maybe I just need some McDonalds and then I will feel better."
WOW!!! As much as I tried not to laugh I tried not to cringe as well! I guess emotional eating starts young. Or maybe a better question is do we as parent's use food to try to comfort our children??? Hmmm, it really makes you think doesn't it... No wonder I have 20 pounds to loose! No wonder...
