"Mommy, is this fattening?" my four-year-old son asked as I sat down on the couch beside him with a bowl of popcorn.
Completely shocked, I replied, "No, honey, it's not fattening. And you don't need to worry about that anyway."
As he began to munch on the popcorn and watch his favorite Spiderman cartoon, I wondered to myself, "Why on earth would he ask such a thing? He's four years old, why would he even care?"
But, I already knew why. And, I'm ashamed to say that I'm to blame.
