The Smartest Kid

Ask any parent about their child, and they would probably tell you that theirs is smartest, cutest kids on the planet. We all love sharing things about our kids – from pictures to funny things they do.

In my case though, I have the TWO smartest, cutest kids on the planet. (But that’s another post for another day.)

My wise eight-year-old told me a few weeks back that VY Canis majoris is the biggest star in the universe, and it is brighter than the sun. (And just to prove to you that he is wise, his mother had to Google the whole VY Canis majoris thing, because she had never heard of it!)

My wise ten-year-old shares his wisdom with me daily. Often times I have to wonder where I was when I should have learned the fact that he is sharing with me. I was probably too busy talking sharing wise words with others in school.

The Campbell’s Soup Company “discovered” the Wisest Kid in the Whole World. He is an eight-year-old boy (my Alex is also eight!) who has the collective wisdom of kids everywhere and is the ultimate authority on what makes kids happy. (Legos and video games make my kids happy!) He knows all the secrets to kid contentment, and Campbell’s is inviting parents all over the world to share your kid’s wisest words. The idea behind the new campaign is to remind us that kids actually have a great deal of wise things to share about a lot of different things. (And in my case, those wise things are often facts about number two. Yes, boys are a JOY.) Recently, I prepared brussel sprouts for dinner. They were not impressed. Nor were they happy.

Through their recipe destination, Campbell’s gives you a fresh way to delight your family (new, kid-friendly recipes like Mini Chicken Pot Pies, and fun ways for your kids to eat tomato soup or chicken noodle soup). They are quick, easy and best of all, your kids will love them.

And, even if you’re not in the mood to try a new recipe *ahem* Campbell’s soup is a great meal all by itself. (Of course if you know us, you know we also include a grilled cheese sandwich with our soup around here.) My favorite Campbell’s soup has always been vegetable. And my wise kids enjoy it too!

How is a kid in your life like the world’s wisest kid?

    There is so much salt in canned soups. Not good for me at all; but, to me, that’s what makes them so appealing. I LOVE chicken noodle, veggie beef and tomato soups. Don’t buy them anymore, though, because of the salt. Dr said I MUST cut it down. 😞
    All my wise kids aren’t kids anymore. Lol

    Last night we were searching(and searching, and searching…) for a missing item. My 8 yr old wisely informed me that “it’s just like faith! You know it is there, but you just can’t see it!” Out of the mouth of babes…;)
