Shut up and let them eat the spinach

Dearest husband,

When our children are sitting at the dinner table eating raw spinach
and liking it... leave them alone! Don't admonish them for tearing it
up before they eat it or getting out of their chairs for some reason.
Again, they were EATING RAW SPINACH AND ENJOYING IT. Dinner was
basically over and they hadn't made one request for dessert! Why
would you mess with that??

Sit down, sip your wine and chat with them while they tear the spinach
into tiny pieces and eat it.

Thanks a million,
Your wife

He just can't help himself, can he?

At least he didn't say, "Wow! That's great. I hated spinach as a child!"

I know, small consolation. I tried.

UGH! What is IT with husbands and trying to make the kids NOT eat?!?!?! It must be a testosterone thing.
