New Things

My mom's published book Picky Eater, That Peter is out!!! Damien is beyond thrilled that she used him as the model for Peter in the book. Not only did my mom write the story but she also drew the pictures.
Are any of your kids picky eaters? Damien was the pickiest eater out of all three. Thanksgiving was difficult to say the least. Questioned with why I was cooking a peacock, then having to explain it was a turkey didn't make it more appetizing to him. At holidays biscuits were his choice food, they still are but now he eats a little bit of everything. No more whining, crying, or fussing - thankfully he realized what Peter does in the book.
With food in mind (nice segue and unplanned), I have been making reusable snack bags for the farmer's market. They are so much healthier for the environment and cost a lot less in the long run then having to buy those plastic baggies. Just pop them into the wash with the other laundry and you got a clean snack bag. Kids seem to like them so much they don't care what's inside as long as they get to hold the bag.
  Think they will be a big hit at the market?

That is so awesome your mom writes childrens books!And just a quick question, what do you line your snack bags with? I have tried a few different ways but haven't found one I liked and was easy to clean. Thanks in advance!
