Last week when Carson was sick, the only thing I could get him to drink was milk with chocolate malt Ovaltine. It’s yummy deliciousness kept my boy nourished with it’s vitamins! and minerals!
Now that he is well, he spends hours each day demanding “more Ovaltine, please” which sadly is spoken at ear piercing volumes and without the “please” part. To do list for tomorrow: Begin weaning process from Ovaltine.
With all this Ovaltine consumption happening in our home, Tate and I got to talking about drinking it as a kid. Actually, I drank it as a kid, but Tate swears that he did not ever have Ovaltine until just last week when I bought it for Carson. Let me repeat, he did not ever have Ovaltine until JUST LAST WEEK. Just. Last. Week.
I informed Tate that this was just not possible. Not having Ovaltine as a child is downright blasphemous and dare I say it, un-American. I did have the utmost respect for my Mother-in-law prior to learning this information, but now I am starting to wonder just what kind of a Mother deprives their child of the rich chocolately goodness that is Ovaltine. Yes it has lots of sugar, I know, but it also has vitamins! and minerals! And it’s delicious.
Help Tate and I settle our dispute. EVERYONE has had Ovaltine, am I right? Please tell me that you’ve had it and that you’ve given it to your children. Also, send any Ovaltine weaning tips my way.
