For several consecutive weeks last fall, I visited the fourth-grade classroom that includes my daughter. We explored reading, math and other subjects as we discussed nutrition, acted out a play and did hands-on activities.

“Mom, I’m going to have an orange,” my teenage daughter noted as she passed by me on her way to the kitchen sink.

“I’m getting out of the way. Your mother is in the kitchen,” my husband said to our daughter.
I glanced at him and my daughter giggled.
“She’s going to make a huge mess for me to clean up,” he added.

“I left cans of food in my garage after grocery shopping and they froze. Can I eat the food?”
“My frozen meat looks a little grayish. Is it safe to eat?”
“I partially defrosted some meat for dinner, but we have a family emergency and are leaving town. Can I refreeze the meat?”

Mom, you make the greatest cookies in the world! my
