Thanks for the card, ren, that was cute.
I have been dragooned, slightly against my will, into making a turkey today - I had already agreed to pies. I was sorta thinking longingly about take out, to be honest. I cook for a living and sometimes I don't really want to spend my holidays cooking too.
Seems to me that this is an occasion for some active parenting - "OK, you two, turn off the TV and come in here, I'm going to show you how to make Thanksgiving dinner" and then delegate!
