So Mel took Ez and Addie in for a WIC appointment yesterday, and while at the appointment the kids both got stickers. Later in the evening I finally actually paid attention to the sticker on Addie's dress:

Anybody else want to know why they're using a faked M&M spokescandy to encourage my daughter to eat more oranges??

So what's on Ezra's sticker? Of course:

Thank you, Mr Wannabe M&M, for encouraging my son to eat, um, whatever that breakfast is supposed to be.

And the most surprising thing to me: Ezra knew it was an M&M just as well as I did, despite living in a non-halloween house with no TV and very rarely any candy sitting around (yes, I am aware what ogres that makes us sound like). Advertising is an amazing thing.
