Last night I was giving my kids the healthy eating spiel. You know...healthy food is good for your muscles and good for your bones... (blah, blah, blah) ...eating healthy helps you grow.
Parker: So if we only eat healthy food, we'll be as tall as uncle Jeff?
Me: Not necessarily. That has to do with your genes.
Parker: That's why uncle Jeff is so tall? He wears skinny jeans so he can just squeeze his body up taller and taller?
I went on to explain the difference between genes and jeans with my 7th grade knowledge of genetics.
And I used to think learning about genes would never help me in the real world.
To see Jeff in all his skinny jeans glory and to get a sneak peek at his strikingly beautiful fiancee, Olivia, you can check out their engagements HERE.
