I agree that children are not taught by observing because parents don't have time. However, I still make my pie crusts. I wouldn't think of buying one even though I know they are good. I do enjoy making fruit pies and cobblers. And I love eating them.

I meant I enjoy making cream pies and fruit cobblers!


I'm glad you worry about them at 4 a.m. because your observations/ponderings give me chances to reflect, consider, improve for my little ones.

Although 4 a.m. just would not work for me to be insightful! I think I'd opine about dreary things that exhaust me about that time. : )

I purchase frozen pies 80% of the time and I'm sure my kids could find them in the store. But they do get to help make them from scratch. One year, the older two cracked all the pecans (from texas) for our Thanksgiving pecan pie.

Some of us are doing some things right some of the time.
