Disappearing Bread

I noticed it a couple of weeks ago.

I buy whole grain white bread for my husband.

I buy multi-grain whole wheat bread for myself.

For years my husband's bread was always finished first.

Everyone in the house except me ate the "white" bread.

At the end of the week, I usually shared the rest of mine with the birds - they seemed to enjoy it.

Well, lately, my bread seems to be the popular one in the household - it's gone before the week is up.

And the culprit is my son - who finally "gets" why I have been eating it all these years.

He is majoring in Exercise Science in college.

His studies include nutrition, and he is taking it quite seriously which I am delighted to see.

All these years of shunning my wheat bread, and he now tells me that I buy one of the best kind there is for us.

Like I didn't already know that.

Someday he will listen to the other things I try to tell him, but small steps for now are good.

I bet those birds aren't too happy though, they are now stuck with that leftover "white" bread.
