The Family Dinner

August 12th, 2009

Last night, we had our first real Family Dinner. You know, that institution that is rapidly disappearing in our country where an entire family eats the same meal at the same time while sitting at a table that is not planted in front of a television It’s a dying art, but one I am determined to maintain in my family.

Exceptions must clearly be made for the under-two crowd and Miss Mouse often goes to bed before we manage to get adult dinner made. But last night it was spaghetti and meatballs for everyone and we managed to eat together.

Well, to be fair, only two of us really ate the meal. The third member of the family mostly sucked the sauce off her noodles, banged her sippy cup, and made a credible attempt at stuffing her meatball up her nose.
