Kenny and I played here today - cleaning, doing laundry, and making lunch from our new favorite cookbook ~ Jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious" - great ideas. Plus she adds fun interesting tidbits, like "social creatures" - where she says that when she sweeps the kids up with interesting conversation at the dinnertable, the kids always eat more happily and quickly... that's great to remember. Last month I read the same thing in Benjamin Franklin's autobiography - Ben's dad always invited people over to eat for that same reason - so the kids wouldn't focus on themselves and what they were eating, therefore becoming picky eaters - instead he wanted to foster stimulating conversation that would keep the meal going. Love it.
