Pumpkin Pudding Parfait

I know a kid is who is the biggest smarty pants.

In the entire universe.

Yup. That’s her.

She is also the biggest Know It All, I have ever met in the 35 years that I have roamed this planet.

And now she has proof. 

She just won 2nd place in the school Science Fair.

I keep telling my kids, “Your only smart because Mommy makes you smart.”

I like to keep it real people.

Mommy is smart.

Mommy married Daddy because Daddy is smart.

When two smart people make babies, guess what, the babies are smart.

The smart babies turn into children who must then continue to eat all their vegetables or else they won’t remain smart.

But sometimes the smart mommy’s have to hide the vegetables in the smart children’s food, because the smart children aren’t quite as smart as the smart mommy.
