I am not sure why I am just now figuring this one out.  I have been a mom for 4 years and 4 months now.  I have two children at home.  I feed them daily, clothe them daily and take care of all their needs.  There are some days that we eat all three meals at home.  I feed them breakfast, a snack, lunch, a snack and dinner all at the same table.

I just now figured out this week that it is not a necessity to use three different plates for three different meals.  You see I always feel like I’m washing dishes.  There are always plates and cups to clean.  Well this week I have had a revelation.  After breakfast I rinse off the plates and set them aside.  Those plates are perfectly good for lunch, especially after they only had a waffle and apples slices on them.  I am amazed at how many less plates I’m washing.

I know most of you are laughing at me right now.  I just figured this out and you’ve been doing this for years with your family!  Aren’t you just glad I figured this out before I had four kids eating three meals a day on the different plates … yes that would be 12 plates a day!

I am so proud of myself.  If you feel the need to fill me in on any other mom things that you think I might not know …. feel free!!!
