You’re a Smartie! A sibling exchange

My 6-year-old son was eating some candy, when he asked, “Mom are ‘Smarties’ good for you?”

“No, sorry but candy is not good for you.”

“But, mom, it’s called ‘Smarties,” he said as he pointed to his head/brain in exasperation.

“Yeah, you’re right the name is misleading. But if your idea is right, broccoli should really be called ‘Smarties,” I suggested.


“Because broccoli does make you smart.”

“Oh,” my 4-year-old daughter suddenly pipes in remembering that her brother refuses to eat broccoli. “Kyle, you’re really not very smart.”
