Aw man, dat is good!
November 22, 2013
I must have done something right! After helping me make her brother’s birthday cupcakes, my 4 year old daughter enjoyed licking the batter off the spoon. Then, she proclaimed, “I definitewy need some-ting heawfy.” I said, ” That’s good that you were able to recognize you needed something healthy,” to which she replied, “My body towd me dat.” So, I gave her some raw brocolli and after a bite she says, “Aw man, dat is good!” Whaaaaaat???!
Update Jan 2017: Now she is 8 years old and read this story on her own. She shared that she continues to listen to her body like she did when she was littler, yet she was able to identify which “body” she often listens to – the wisdom body. You see, I had recently taught her about the koshas and she was able to connect this new knowledge with what she had read in this story. She continues to amaze me.
