There they sat, ages five, seven, eight and nine. Four of my five grandchildren ready to dig in and eat supper. They're all starving to death because I didn't let anyone have treats for about two hours before dinner. That's a little trick I learned years ago. The longer you starve kids, the better they eat. Don't fall for it if they drop to the floor grabbing their throats, begging for a crumb of food. Stand strong!
