FOF Observation #13

The "FOF Observations" are a series of "Perpetual Posts" where I will share with you, my readers, short little "one line" observations that I have made (or will be making) on being the father of a large family. You will be able to access each of the posts in a cohesive list by clicking on the "FOF Observations" link in the "Perpetual Posts" group on the sidebar.

Something occurred to me this evening.

Having had a particularly busy "no-school" day that included not only our kids, but also their friends (and one friend as a sleep-over), it finally sunk in...

The crumbs left behind on our kitchen floor (often) have the potential to contain both the caloric, and nutritional value to support a small third world nation...

(Ruler added for reference....)

  2. Any Oreos in there? If so, I'll be there in a minute.

  3. I always laugh and say we could feed a small rd world village with the amount of food that winds ip on the floor.

  4. David,
    There is a disturbing lack of hair in your photo. You aren't saving it to braid into a doily or cozy are you?


  5. You're right, FOF. There is a common crumb theme among all large families (referring to your comment on my latest posting). Your sweepings don't have the toys and kitchen implements (thrown on the floor by the smallest one) that mine always seem to, but that is probably just an anomaly.

  6. Our dog, Liberty, usually takes care of our crumb problem. She waits under each chair just incase someone drops a little something for her.

    Makes my life much easier to have a dog around ;)

    And crikey! Where does it all come from?
