Special Dinner Times

Was it Amy, or Denise? SOMEONE told a great tradition they have in their families and we've started doing it and it's completley a tradition now. The kids adore it. They tell me when they've figured out their high or their low.
So, you go around the table and everyone tells the best thing that happened to them during the day and the worst. It has truly been an eye opener. Conner is opening up a lot more about the things that happen at school and what he's most proud of. I actually hear something about what happened during Drew's day, and I'm guessing it's the same for me -- since we mostly say "how was your day" and the other one says "fine" or {glare} -- you know... that's about all that's said.
Anyway, it's a good tradition, and one that I highly recommend.

  1. All props go to Amy.

    We are still at "the throw dinner on the table and eat as quickly as you can, before someone gets stabbed with a fork" phase of life.

  3. We've been doing it for a couple months now. Love it. Got the idea from a post on 2Peas, actually.

    You're so right, Bria opens up so much more about things that happen at school. And, I love that Chloe's high is almost always, "When Mommy came home" :)

  4. Yes- it was me. But I can't take all credit.... I heard it in Relief Society (in one of the few practical comments that actually help people). Anyway- glad it's working... my kids LOVE it!
