You guys are really being kind to your kids.  My mother (who didn't work 
outside the home, so there wasn't that excuse) never allowed us to eat 
anything but what she fixed.  If we didn't eat what was put before us 
(fortunately, she was an amazing cook!!), we went hungry.  Actually, I'm 
grateful that she insisted that we eat what she fixed...it's amazing the 
amount of stuff I learned to eat...and now count among my favorites!  
However, I still can't look a bowl of oatmeal in the eye!!  ;-)


Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm. 
As you get older, remember you have another hand: the first is to help 
yourself, the second is to help others
