Things That Can Be Stopped by the "Mom Glare"

I’ve worked a long time to perfect the “Mom Glare:” that way of looking at your children that says to them, “If you don’t cut that out right now you’ll be grounded until you’re 45” without saying a single word.

And fortunately the Mom Glare works when my older children make plans like this:

“I bet that if we sit directly across from each other and use our forks as catapults, we could shoot dumplings right into each other’s bowls.”

But it’s going to be a long time before I make chicken and dumplings for dinner again.
