Can you believe Chatty made this. I asked hubs to get two cans of pineapple rings - he comes home with 1 can of rings and 1 can of bits. So I thought I'd use the bits too and maybe grandson would eat and not know there was anything healthy in it. I have to be sneaky with this guy.

Well grandson loved it - all except for the top no matter where or what was on it - so he ate the bottom of a lot of it - oh well - I did try.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I know from past experience that it is truly okay to fall apart. Seriously. Because it is when you hit rock bottom that you HAVE to make THE decision - to better yourself or to stay down. If you use it as an opportunity to rebuild yourself - you will be stronger and wonder why you didn't do it sooner!
PS - My daughter went back to school this week - she's a teacher. And I have my grandson full time. So if I get behind in answering your comments please understand. Thanks.
