Looking through my child's eyes



It's very interesting to see myself through my child's eyes. This is what my second grader did at school for Mother's Day. It really made me smile!

Teachings are coming back to haunt me

I've written before about the evils of teaching your children to read and write. Now I have a new parental caution.

I have often encouraged my kids to try new foods -- sometimes just a bite. Even if you didn't like it before, your tastes may change. Well, that one came back to bite me.

You see, my kids are fairly purist when it comes to chocolate. So, I am able to keep a stash to myself by buying things like Hershey bars with Almonds. The other day I am having one and B asks if he can try a bite -- after all, he says, he may like them now. Sure enough, he thinks they're great and I now have to compete with him for an afternoon snack.

Be warned!
