1. Do not feed your children in the living room, even if it is more cozy and comfortable in front of the fireplace.
2. Take the phone with you wherever you go because you never know when it will ring and you'll have to jump up and answer it, leaving your children to their own devices.
3. When you don't listen to my advice and you do feed the children in the living room and you do forget to bring the phone with you, please, please remember, to TAKE THE FOOD WITH YOU WHEN YOU GET UP TO ANSWER THE PHONE. Chubby boys who like to eat will always find a way to get to their grub.
4. Buy lots of paper towels and a Spot Bot for when 1-3 fail.
