On to the questions!

1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates? (WordPress is not letting me take off the bold print) I don’t have kids but I WILL answer this for my future children…I will NOT make them finish their plate because I really think this sometimes makes people eat MORE…I know it’s instilled in me that if I put it on my plate, I should finish it, and it’s really hard to get this out of my head. I do not BLAME my mom for doing this because I understand the reasons behind finishing a plate and know it was not meant to be as a way for me to stuff myself, however, I think a better method nowadays is to make sure your kid eats a little of eat food group and not just all junk…so if there’s veggies on the plate, the kid should eat so many “bites” instead of eating it all if they are just not hungry….2. Do you give an allowance? I have no one to give an allowance too…and I don’t remember ever being given one, I was just given money when I needed it. I think when a kid starts getting old enough to do chores, an allowance could be a good thing to instill responsibility and have them be rewarded for doing what they are supposed to do. Not necessarily a lot of money, though……if they are little, maybe $1 a week and have a little piggy bank where they can save up to buy their own BIG prize or something….I always loved to save pennies to buy something with my own money when I was little. 🙂

3. Do you actually park your car in the garage? There is NO garage at my apartments…I am just in the big parking area LOL

4. What is one food you will NEVER cook? I feel like this is almost a question better answered with NEVER say NEVER…because there are foods I absolutely hated when I was younger that I love now and there are foods I might not like but would still make for my husband…ex. Spaghetti with spaghetti sauce. My future kids might like foods that I don’t like but I would cook them for them… I don’t know….I guess I could say with a pretty good certainty that you won’t catch me cooking caviar(snails) LOL….never tried them and don’t plan on it….even if I did, I just couldn’t see myself cooking them! And probably any bugs that some like to eat as exotic food… cats or dogs either….cause that’s just messed up….

5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the

summer? (NOW the bold print turns off! ugh!) I have nothing planned….:( my boring life LOL….BUT if you have the money and would like to pay for me a nice vacation, I am willing to accept 😉

Haha, I wouldn’t cook snails either (they’re actually a REAL pain to prep, you have to feed them flour for days to clean up their digestive systems). But I also wouldn’t cook beef. I haven’t eaten it for over 20 years so I’d need cook it, even for someone else.

I also don’t force my kids to finish their plate. I give them what I think they can eat. If they finish it and want more, I usually give it. They’re very good at telling me when they’re full so I respect that. They’re very lean so I don’t have to worry about limiting their food intake, which is a good thing.

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
