One battle at a time

I am sure I drank milk as a kid, my mom is very responsible like that. She would have made sure I drank it.
Somewhere along the way, I stopped.
Now that I have kids I am always on them to drink milk, "get your calcium, your growing, you need strong bones". I even made Gabrielle drink it when she was younger and at our house.
I have decided I need to walk the walk.
I am 41 and just started drinking milk.
I will be a much better example to my kids if I am drinking it as well. Plus of course, all the health benefits...I like my bones and my posture!!!
So, I started off small and chugged it down. Not so bad, why haven't I been doing this all along??? I mean I had the random glass with a piece of cake every now and then, but that is about it.
Whitney does not enjoy drinking her milk, but she does it. She looks at me with wide eyes and thinks I am nuts, but I hope she will one day appreciate that I am doing and wont think I am so crazy.
Although,we will probably have moved on to some other reason why she thinks I am crazy. One battle at a time.
