Okay, nothing major here, just a tip on getting your kids to eat veggies.

We’ve started Crunch Contests with the kids when we serve raw carrot sticks.  Sounds basic and maybe dull?  I didn’t realize how much they would get into it!  And, we make them eat everything else on their plates before they can participate in the contest, so we get all the other nutrients in as well (AND we don’t spend forever at the table waiting for them to finish their supper!).

What are your tricks for getting kids to eat and enjoy the veggies?

In the van on the way to Kings Island:

Jake (to the other kids): If you’re naked and you do something bad and the police catch you, they will give you a ticket and stick it to your pee-pee.

Bald Man: No they won’t, Jake.

Jake: Okay.  I was just guessin’.

Day: Mother’s Day Morning

Samantha: “Where’s Mommy?”
Bald Man: “In the bathroom.”
Samantha: “What’s she doing in there?”
Jake: “She’s clipping her eyebrows off.
Samantha: “Nuh uh.”
Jake: “Uh huh.”

Here’s hoping you had a Mother’s Day requiring no clipping off of your eyebrows. 😉

A mom, and a psychologist

Those were my answers to the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” from about the age of 12 until I graduated from college and knew that I wasn’t about to go back for a Master’s (much to my mother’s continued dismay). From then on the mom thing was it, and here I am. 😉 I wish I’d realized that a professional photographer could have been an option. Maybe that’s my answer now. For when I grow up.

This little quiz was interesting, if not all that accurate. I came across it over at Anne Marie’s. As she said, it takes about a second to complete. You all have time for that! 😛

You Should Be an Artist

You are incredibly creative, spontaneous, and unique.
No one can guess what you’re going to do next, but it’s usually something amazing.
You can’t deal with routine, rules, or structure. You’re easily bored.
As long as you are able to innovate and break the rules, you are extremely successful.

You do best when you:

– Can work by yourself
– Can express your personality in your work

You would also be a good journalist or actor.

Though it’s true that I can’t deal well with routine and structure, I don’t think it’s all that amazing or surprising anything that I do. That sounds sad. 😛

Head on over here, take your test, and lemme know. 🙂

Are are you serious?

So, Bald Man and I are leaving Sam’s Club today and we’re almost to the car when we overhear the following conversation behind us between a father and son. Keep in mind that Bald Man is wearing his Columbus Crew hat and coat.

Kid: “You probably don’t like soccer because you didn’t really grow up with it, did you?”

Dad (in his Chicago Bears hat, mind you): “It’s not because I didn’t grow up with it, I just don’t see the point of a bunch of guys running around a football field chasing after a little ball!”

Annnnnndddd sooooooooo…….what is football, again????
