Next topic - food. In light of the new year, we are trying to return to more healthy eating. Our family can consume an enormous amount of fruit and veggies and the affordable selection is so boring this time of year. I went grocery shopping yet again today.
Here was tonight's dinner: chicken, broccoli and carrots on rice. There were two carrots leftover, not even enough for JD's lunch tomorrow.
Lastly, I'm contemplating what I should do with a child that is being consistently mean to his siblings behind my back. He almost never is even remotely rude in front of me, but I'm getting too many reports of the ugly words and actions behind my back. Does anyone have any ideas that don't turn the other kids into constant tattlers? I'm really frustrated with lecturing children who stand there and repeat "yes, ma'am, yes, ma'am" but have no real interest in the right thing to do.
OK, three random topics for Tuesday, maybe my brain will be more organized tomorrow.
