A Sterling & Not So Sterling Moment …with Doughnuts

Sterling Mom Moment:
This morning, I asked the boys if they wanted doughnuts for breakfast (a VERY rare treat) because their Dad had to run to Sheetz for coffee. Sidenote: It is never pleasant when we run out of coffee in our house.

My seven year old said, “What’s a doughnut?” and the two year old echoed his question.


Neither he nor my two year old had a clue what doughnuts were! In hindsight, I suppose they haven’t had them too often at all. I’ve been doing my best to be healthy, which means limited sugars, processed foods, meat, and dairy.

So, I’m feeling pretty good about myself, our nutrition, and my parenting skills…

PS: Here is the poor victim:
