Growing Taller.

Ashley has just reached the height where she can switch the lightswitch on and off. Sometimes, if she comes at it at a bad angle, she can't quite reach it. This happened recently one night and just as I was about to help her - "Stand with you feet together and legs straight" or "Try again", she looked at me and shrugged and said "No green beans". I realized immediately what she meant and had to hide my laughter. She had been watching a PBS show called "Caillou" and had heard that eating vegetables would help you grow big and strong. That night, at dinner, she had said "No thank you" when I offered her green beans. She assumed that since she had not eaten them, that was the reason why she could not reach the lightswitch. She has not said "No thank you" to a vegetable since that night and has hit a growth spurt. I am going to milk this one for all it's worth :).
