1. What's for dinner?

2. What is one thing that you are looking forward to?

I really agree. When I stopped catering to my picky eater and making her try all the foods we were eating, over time she found she liked almost everything.

We always had the two bite rule in our house when the kids were younger, try two bites before you decide if you don't like something.  I'm sure I have just started the great food debate of 2013 by that comment!

DD loves to bake, She saved a lot of recipes from a 6th grade skills class and she makes fantastic banana muffins. I pretty much make sure she has everything she needs and watch her and assist as needed, I do help with clean up. I make most of the dinners too, The kids and DH help clean up, I have it made, Lol.

I like my house clean, all the time. Everything has a "home" and it should be put in that "home". My hubby helps me out a lot but I have my way of doing things (as he does too with his other things). It has nothing to do with respect but that other people do not do 100% of what you would like 100% of the time. I have a friend who does not go crazy cleaning or organizing. She said it doesn't bother her not to have a clean home or for things to sit around. Her husband cooks and does the laundry. It doesn't bother her if things pile up.

Ok, well I guess then it is in mine BUT the making something different is on them, not me or my hubby.

My kids go through phases of liking or disliking certain foods. They ALWAYS have loved veggies and still do so at least I know they will eat those all the time. I know that there are 4 people in my home and not all 4 will like everything that is made all the time.

Personally, it doesn't matter WHO is making something different. It's not an option if the kid is going to pick and choose to eat part of the dinner that was cooked for the family.

If I cook, hubby (and kids ) will clean up and vice-versa unless one of us has to run out right after dinner.

I don't think anyone in my house would ever get up to my cleaning standards lol (maybe hubby is close some times). I also seem to see more things than anyone else in my house.

If I had one cleaning standard I misewell do it all myself, Lol, Wrong debate!
