Today I made little mini pizzas for lunch. (Really yummy....use English muffins, jarred pizza sauce, and your choice of toppings) So the girls ate in the living room with the guys and I stayed in the kitchen to feed Cornbread.

I would doze off mid-sentence, only to have them nudge me, saying, "What happens next?"…
