I don't have perfect children, but I am grateful that they are well mannered... Well, in public! I mean if I have to choose where they will be well mannered, and it is ONLY one place...isn't PUBLIC the best bet? I didn't get to choose, it just turned out that way. We took our broad, mom, dad and 5 children under 11 to eat at a salad style buffet place. They all ate well...Yes, our children eat a variety of raw vegetables for the reward of dessert...(well all except the 2 year old...and he's TWO so that explains a lot of things!). They were respectful, quiet and visited and told silly kid jokes to each other while we ate. They all earned dessert (almost). It was a fun night out with the children. We don't do it often, and they know it is a reward, but I am grateful we get to do it with them sometimes. I know they look forward to it, but so do I! Said TWO year old...went without dessert. Life, it's all about choices.
Changing the world...ONE letter at a time!
