I can't stand that phrase.

"Teachable Moment". It makes me cringe. I find it's over used by parents and teachers that want to sound like they know everything about Montessori, preschoolers, and being good at leading by example.

I'm not one of those people.


By golly, I had a Teachable Moment!
We were watching an episode of How It's Made, and they were making ice cream filled Popsicles. (By the way, did you know they make the outside shell first? Me neither.) I paused the episode, tossed The Punk in the car, and we headed to the grocery.

We came home, un-paused the show and ate the exact same Popsicles they were making on the TV.

That's MY kind of Teachable Moment.
