Tonight at the Dinner Table...

Matt (overly cheerful): "Honey, Baxter asked a really good question today!"

Me (warily looking from him to Baxter): "What was that?"

Matt: "Well, I thought it was something he should ask you. He was wondering who invented place mats, and it seemed like you would know since it must have been someone in your family!"

My anal-retentive neat freak family members just said a collective, "Ouch."

For the record, the idea that someone in Jordan's family would know about, or even had a part in, the placemat's genesis came from Baxter. I was, shamefully, all too happy to pass the idea along.

OUCH! Ah, kids...(snort)

Tell him the story about how granmammy Sadler stole the idea from Shannon's granmammy Hyland. Talk about placemats!

I had no idea that this was initiated by Baxter - even better!!

And Christopher, I'm going to have to look waaaay back in my family tree but just by looking at Shannon and myself, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think either one of us ever had a "granmammy"...
