The Boy And The Bean ... One STINKIN' Bean!

 This is the tale of two brothers and some beans. Little brother loves beans so when Mama Barron made (opened a can of) baked beans tonight she knew little brother would enjoy every minute of his meal.

Just as Mama Barron was certain little brother would love his beans she knew big brother would HATE them. Mama and Papa Barron did their best to "encourage" big brother to eat the bean. They started by telling him he could not have his coveted corn on the cob until he ate a bean (ONE stinkin' bean). To speed the process along they also threatened to eat all the corn on the cob if he didn't hurry up.

When this attempt to get the bean down didn't work, momma and papa Barron tried a new tactic. They tried to help big brother Barron realize that there was no reason to fear the bean. They also tried to cheer big brother Barron to victory over the bean.

Momma and papa Barron are very dedicated (stubborn) parents. They knew big brother Barron could conquer this bean so they decided to give him a practical tactic used by children for ages.

Failure was not an option. Big brother Barron was so close. With just a little cheering moma and papa Barron were certain  big brother Barron would eat the bean. And maybe - if everyone was lucky - he would even like it!

  1. When I was teaching a Headstart class at meal times we encouraged the kids to put a little of everything on their plate and try it. One little boy was so opposed to having a tomato on his plate that his face contorted, he screamed and finally used his fork to get it off his plate. Once the dreaded tomato was off of his plate he was then able to eat the rest of his lunch.

  2. Bobby and I laughed our heads off over this. I'm glad he finally tried the bean and liked it. Uncle Bobby says, "That's okay, because I hate baked beans. And I've tried 'em."
