Thanks for the ideas, I was trying to tell my girls, who want to make me B. in bed, that Mommy does not want...well, maybe:D...anyway, I CAN"T have pastries, etc. I am going to write out a menu for them and tell them, they can make me any choice on the menu...that way, I stay POP! Thanks for the good ideas! have a great Mommy Day!
