It's a noisy day around here. :) We've been doing Legos all morning (which seems like a quiet activity but is somehow not). :) The kids are home from school due to ice/snow. We don't have much here in the valley, but up on the hill where the high school is, they got 4 inches.
So, now the little munchkins are hungry. It is nearing lunchtime. They begged for meatballs, salami/cream cheese, and cheese cubes. Hmmm... Somehow, I'm not thinking that is a good lunch. :) Tommy also wanted chips. Personally, I find salami/cream cheese roll-ups to be disgusting, but my mom got them hooked on them and actually BRINGS them to us.
So, I tell them, "SURE, fine, go for it. BUT, at dinner tonight your ENTIRE plate will be VEGETABLES. Preferably green leafy ones. A big HEAPING plate of veggies. YUM!"
Six eyeballs whipped toward me, flashing with horror!
I grinned. Mwa haha! :)
But then they surprised me. They said, "Well, can we have a potato with them?" And they were PLEASED!
So, I'll make them eat a few carrots now and then really enjoy the completely healthy meal tonight. :)
But, I am wondering if I'm being a completely horrible mom! :)
