An Exciting Career in Food Service

Mister's kindergarten class walked to Sam's club the other day for a field trip to culminate the end of their food science/nutrition unit. He came home sporting a lovely hair net:

"Look, Mom!" he told me. "This is for when we're doing kung fu in the kitchen while we make food. Then if someone kicks me and knocks me over into the food, my hair won't get in it."

Apparently, food service is more exciting than I ever imagined.

* Fun days at school
* A clean kitchen
* A brief respite from sickness

"You are going to be SO excited at Christmas, Mom."

Mister tells me at bedtime tonight. "Your gardening gloves are really old, right?" 
"Right," I said. "And pretty dirty. And I think I even lost one of them."
"Well," he said. "I can't tell you what I'm getting you for Christmas, but you are going to be SO excited."  

He's right. I already am!

*  Christmas with kids.
* Thinking of others.
* Bedtime.
