I almost cried.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

My children always have an after-school snack as soon as they get home from school. Yesterday, my 9 year old son asked me if he could have a SALAD. I almost cried!

Then, last night, while watching TV, my 12 year daughter got out the yoga mat and did a workout.

There's hope after all! At least some of what I do is sinking in. Yeah!

    You can talk all you want but kids will do what they see. Good for you for being a healthy example!

But make a list of things you have learned from those mistakes and then MOVE ON.

puzzle for today

Friday, April 22, 2011

Think of the two-word name of an event concerned with protecting the planet. Take the first word, move its third letter to the end, and put the result inside the second word, and you'll get a two-word phrase that names something that might destroy the planet in an old sci-fi movie.

What are they?




Earth Day...death ray
