Puddle in Front of Screen but Master of Nutrition

The Matron still hasn't had anything anything resembling an epiphany surrounding the media issue, nor was she able to stop-- or really wholly withstand -- Scarlett's histrionics regarding a slight change made to that child's bedroom without Official Consult with the room's owner. A mistake, yes, but when those screams came pouring through the house and through the Matron's veins? She started to dial 911.

If these aspects of domestic life remain unchanged, she can take comfort in her ability to adequately feed her children.

While waiting for Scarlett to emerge from a film workshop, the Matron fretted aloud about forgetting to bring a snack -- something to keep her traveling companions, Merrick and his buddy, Jack, occupied.

Matron: "Too bad there's no food in this van."

Friends, you know what's coming.

Merrick: "Thewe's a LOT of food! Wanna cookie?"

Turns out they found a small feast on the floor. Which they were happily eating.

Resourcefulness--a skill we could all use more of.

Ha! Don't feel bad. I'm sure my van could produce a three-course meal and a change of clothes for everyone.

My sons are addicted to Screen (aka World of Warcraft) but are required (due to WiFi limitations) to play it in the living room and be sociable at the same time. Not my doing, but it works for me.

No food in my car, however Ernest found some stale fritos on the floor of the pantry. He dropped them there about a week ago.

Sounds like my son, who, just today picked an icicle off a car and ate it. Yum!

But... the children didn't go hungry.

My children frequently forage for food in the minivan. There's always a half-eaten granola bar or some cold french fries to be had. Yum.

Hahaha!! Young boys will never starve.

Resourceful little darlings, all of you.
