We do this for a number of reasons:
- So we can eat
- So we can talk
- So we don't hear yellls, whines and screams while we try and eat
- So we don't have food or utensils thrown at us (that would be the little guy)
- So we don't get indigestion
This weekend was a bit different. We actually had THREE family meals together. They all had varrying degrees of sucess, but ultimately, the brunch was my favorite. It reaffirmed that we don't need to have dinner with the kids. It's just too much work, and it's too hard to eat.
I do look forward to the days when they will be able to sit with us at the table and take care of themselves. But I'm in no rush.
