Wrote this in December and time got away....
My kids are growing up a bit, and it is both great and a little painful. For instance, both of my older kids came home with their report cards a day or two ago. The did well, and, I was impressed. (The 11 month old is still at the drool stage, but she can pick up a cheerio and put it in her mouth....Yea! Best baby!). Anyway, we discussed the report card which I turned into a riff on how to use the Fibonacci sequence for a simple cipher for passing notes in class and (probably) not get busted. That was a great conversation, and I felt comfortable sharing because I can still crack any code that they might come up with. At least today. And then we had snack. I am a bit of a freak about cooking, and I like to try new things etc. Snack for me is a fun thing to do. For this snack I took apples and sliced them to resemble teeth. I used Raspberries for eyes and nose and ears. I used a little bit of chocolate syrup for hair and eyebrows and of course the face was the plate. It was fun, and it probably represents some of the more important things in life.
