Saturdays are a work day for Jason so it is just me and the four kids. Saturday is also a big chore day around here so there is not a lot of time for a proper lunch. I have come to rely on Sebastian to run down to the neighborhood shop with a list in hand. It builds his knowledge of shopping and related math while giving him a special responsibility that he can be proud of. Then we get to gather around the table, all five of us, and have a simple lunch.
And this guy is a happy participant in these meals. After all you don't get to be 24 pounds at 7 months just by smiling.
