My 4-year-old, Jacob, saw my niece, Charlotte, get a can of Coke out of my mom's refrigerator and he had a few pointed questions...
Jacob: What did Charlotte get out of your refrigerator?
My mom: It's called Coke. It's a kind of drink.
Jacob: Can I have some?
Mom: No, it's not very good for you.
Jacob.: Why is Charlotte having it?
Mom: Well, I guess a little is OK for older kids and adults.
Jacob.: Why is it bad for you?
Mom: It has a lot of sugar.
Jacob: I like sugar.
Mom: Yes, but too much isn't good for you.
Jacob: If those drinks are so bad, why do we have them on earth?
Mom: That's a good question. I don't know really.
Jacob: Well, why do you have them in your refrigerator?
