While my children don’t have the best manners, I try and give them some simple tips to remember, each time they sit at the table (p.s. This is more for my four year-old, than my younger children, but even E (2 1/2) is picking up on these easy tips)!
1. Chew with your mouth closed.
2. Use a spoon/fork if possible, otherwise, you may use your fingers.
3. Do not play with your food.
4. Do not talk with food in your mouth.
5. Stay in your seat, until everyone has finished eating.
I wore them in college, because I found a couple of pairs in our sorority house “give away” basket. But since then, I’ve grown out of them, and had forgotten all about them, until recently, when I was flipping through my latest Patagonia catalog. Needless to say, after receiving them, I still love them, and have worn them for two days straight! They are a little high waisted, but I roll the waist band down once. I ordered the first pair through Patagonia, but I’m thinking my next pair will be ordered through Zappos, as they seem to have more in stock, and their free shipping and free returns can’t be beat! The Nike Tempos are still my favorite for working-out, but if I’m in need of something simple and casual to throw on, I’m loving these.
And last, but not least…GO WEBB!
He married a family friend of ours, and we’re just so thrilled that he won the U.S. Open!! Now every time he tees off, they’ll say, “Webb Simpson, winner of the 2012 US Open.” Unbelievable, and what a finish! If interested, read more HERE.
