I love how the kids pick up certain behaviors of mine without me teaching them. I'm a lazy mopper and if the kids spill water or some other liquid, I'll throw a towel on top and use my feet to sop it up, because usually I have Baby in my arms or something and bending over or getting on my hands and knees is not convenient for me. I caught Youngest doing the feet/towel thing when she spilled some of her water. I'll have to remember that the next time I'm doing something I don't want the kids to pick up.
Hubby went to our friends' place for more wood and I knew he would come home hungry. Plus, it's chilly and that's always an excuse to warm up the house with the oven! I made a roast and slow cooked it in the oven for several hours then added carrots for the last hour. I also boiled whole potatoes and then thick-sliced them and layered them with cooked onions, butter, milk and parmesan cheese for a rustic potato au gratin-- it was something I made up and it was delicious! I'll make that again!
