Today in Benisms

As transcribed by Lynn:

[Daddy]: Yes, I have a beard. You know, someday, Ben, you'll have a beard too. How old do you think you have to be to have a beard?

[Ben] You have to have a beard to drink some beer.

And yesterday:

[Ben] Want more brussels sprouts!

Yes, dear readers, Ben likes brussels sprouts. He also eats edamame beans (steamed soy beans), green beans, green peas, cauliflower, broccoli, beets, asparagus, and other improbable toddler foods. We don't pander, we only force a little, but we have this little deal these days. "If you want some watermelon, you have to eat your ______." That is, "If you want one healthy fresh food, you have to first eat another healthy, fresh food."

It won't last.
