I'm not sure if it's positive or negative...

As a parent you are supposed to model the behavior you want to see in your children, right?! And if you say that something is important to do, by golly, they better see you doing it, right?!

So the boys are sitting at their desks working on handwriting and chatting with one another and notion of gifts comes up. They talked about toys or practical items and their value... then Bobcat made an interesting observation!

Bobcat: "Grown ups don't need toys for Christmas or birthdays because all they really do is read and cook stuff!"

What I take away from this is that they see us reading, and that it is fun and informative. Then the cooking part... I cook way more than we eat out and that is normal for them, and hopefully they will continue that trend as they grow-up. Oh, and the kids don't know this... but every gift idea that Daddio has given me had to do with cooking (camp cooking to be specific).

And one more thought from Bobcat that has nothing do with the previous: "I just don't understand how God was never born, I'm going to try and remember to ask Him that when I get to Heaven."
