Snook voluntarily ate four forkfuls of peas the other night. This is huge because she's been on a self-imposed (of course) green strike for about the last 49 days. Could I possibly have The Gulps to thank? After reading this book the first time, I immediately regretted checking it out from the library because I found the portrayal of the plus-size Gulp family to be a bit offensive. Seriously, just because you don't wear a size 4 doesn't mean you let your kids drink soda and eat Cheetos for breakfast before a long day of channel-surfing. But the overarching message is to eat right, and if this is what Snook picked up on then, gulp, I guess it's okay sometimes to take the bad with the good.
