So it’s not Tuesday . . . but here’s the treasure

It was Tuesday, but I was having a case of the Mondays a la Office Space – thanks to the Labor Day holiday. So give a girl a break, I’m behind one day!

I’ve been meaning to write up the cool goodie I got in the mail last week from Michelle Wong, a mom and business owner from San Francisco. Michelle and her co-founder Paige Akabane, are the moms behind My Plate-Mate, the big plastic semicircle that I’ve been wrapping around my daughter’s dinner plate for the past few nights.

Ever tried chasing a pile of peas across the plate with your fork? And you’re a full-grown adult with a college degree who still can’t master it? Now how do you expect your 3-year-old to sit up straight, no elbows on the table and no messes on the placemat? If you never thought of it that way, put yourself in your kid’s shoes! Oh, and pick up a My Plate-Mate while you’re at it. It stretches to fit any of those melamine plates piled up in your cupboard and comes in a variety of colors for kids who have to put their own flair on their plate.
