Our Saturday

Caption: Natalie "nose" how to be cute.

Margie took the 9:04 train to New York City, and Casey took the kids to breakfast. Theo scored the first spill of the day -- half the maple syrup in the fancy container gushed over the table. The waiter looked at the sticky mess, and suggested that we move to a new table. (No thanks.)

Natalie didn't touch her eggs.

Then we dropped off laundry at George's, bought a lollipop at Variety Village, and played miniature golf in Essex County. Natalie loved putting her ball intentionally into the water. The colorful balls they gave us were floaters, so daddy could easily scoop them out of the water with any one a number of handy, conveniently located 10-foot-long ball scoopers.

After the golf, over drinks in the clubhouse, Natalie said: "Daddy you have a pointy nose." Yes, Natalie. What kind of nose do you have? "Mine is not pointy."

Natalie has the cutest nose I've ever seen.

What's the best way to get kids to eat?

I don't know the answer to this, but when you find out, please please please send me the information. We need it too!

I think the answer is to sprinkle sugar on everything.

But until they eat well, just order one thing for two to share. That is key.

Wait until they're hungry.
