Meet Jack's Parents: Two Tired, Pasty-Faced Guys

Recently, our family's little difference has become more significant to Jack, who has let us know that he's not interested in being different. We understand and empathize, and have discussed this with him at length. We've also made sure that he is aware that while in that one way, he's different from most kids at his school, in hundreds of ways, he's exactly the same: he likes refined white sugar, dirt, video games, bikes, and Lego, and will relentlessly campaign for his right to not eat "that" food, to not go to bed, to please go to Disneyland this weekend, and to request of his parents that they please don't ever dance or sing in public.
