When we moved into our new rental house, we were excited about fresh starts and new traditions. We have a large living room with an attached playroom, a much better kitchen (hooray for Chef Daddy!) and the best room in the house…the dining room! One of my first rules of the new house was definitely that we would always have a family dinner at the table – together – and catch up on our days.
When I was growing up, family dinner at the table together was a requirement. We had to take the phone off the hook (side note, that was in the dark ages before cell phones and the phone was on the wall…ours was even rotary…geez!) and we had to turn the TV off. We talked about what happened throughout the day and we listened to our parents talk about work and weekend plans.
Even now, my dad cooks Sunday dinner every week and my sister’s family and my family come over and we all join together for a family dinner at the table. My dad sometimes won’t eat because he’s exhausted from cooking all day, but most of the time, he is somewhere nearby listening to us all talk about our weeks or listening to us “mmm” over his delicious food.
