“Mommy why don’t cats talk like people?”
“Mommy why are plates round but you can’t throw them like balls?”
“Mommy, does Bob Marley’s mommy live in Hamsterdam?”
“Mommy, are cats and dogs best friends sometimes?”
“Mom, why can’t I have a phone of my own?”
“Mommy, how do they get those people in the TV?”
Survey says that kids ask about 1000 questions a day(okay, I just made that number up as I’m just going by my personal experience with three curious kids in the house – so consider that an average). And I admit that much of the time I cannot answer their questions. Or keep a straight face.
This is 30 second picture into my typical day…
But there is one question that I need to answer, and that is “What’s for dinner?” And the best way in to get all three kids to smile and say “Right answer, Mom!” during our cool Fall weather here in Minnesota, is to answer with “Campbell’s Tomato Soup and grilled cheese sandwiches!”
And then maybe they will be too busy eating to ask me why squirrels cannot fly airplanes.
Or maybe they can just ask The Wisest Kid In The Whole World!
The Wisest Kid, discovered by Campbell’s Soup is an 8 year old who lives on a mountaintop and offers lighthearted advice to parents about what makes kids happy, especially around mealtime. He may not be able to tell you about “Hamsterdam” but he will offer kid-friendly mealtime tips, recipes and more to help parents avoid the “Mealtime dilemma.” We’ve all been there, right?
The best part though is you(and your kids) can ask him a question at any time by just using this friendly and funny and awesomely entertaining Wisest Kid Widget. (Go ahead and ask him about squirrels).
I admit that (besides a kid-friendly and healthy dinner) I wonder how I can be a fun mom. Even The Wisest Kid has an answer for that…..
Campbell’s is hosting a special event on September 17th in NYC in Times Square from 12-2pm EST where you can interact with the campaign and meet The Wisest Kid as he live streams from a billboard. From home you can tweet @thewisestkid or use the hashtag #askwisestkid to ask him advice or share a funny from your own wisest kids.
Now, I just have to train him to tell my very wise almost 11 year old why she doesn’t need a cell phone at her age…
