I don’t know about you, but there is a word I have uttered every single day since the day my children were born.  You see, my children are both picky eaters, slow eaters, distracted eaters.  It seems not a day or even a meal passes without the me saying the word – EAT!  at least once to at least one of my children. 
I’ve decided to make it my family motto.  Some family have mottos that are inspiring, loving, or caring, not me.  Mine’s more of a command.  I’m not proud, but it’s what I’ve become.
So recently while at Homegoods I came across the word that haunts me on many days.  It was a black one piece sign, so I plunked down the $25 and took it home.  The only problem was it was slightly too long for the space I wanted to hang it.  So back it went.  The idea though was still in my mind, and so off to Michaels I went to pick up those 3 little letters along with some yarn that looked like twine. I came home and lovingly wrapped those letters in yarn.  I used a tab off of a pop can as a hanger on the back.


A little hot glue here there helped hold the yarn in place.

When I finished I hung those 3 letters up over the kitchen sink as a reminder of what my kids are supposed to do.  The good news is,  when the kids are grown and gone, I think I’ll switch those letters around to read Tea.  Same three letters with a whole new meaning.
