Dinner Table

For all the things I get wrong in this life as a dad, the one thing I think we do well is eat dinner together as a family.  We don’t always have seven course meals, or always have the TV off, but we eat dinner together almost every single night.

The dinner table helps build our family.  It is a place to reinforce manners, discuss the day’s events or goals of tomorrow and most importantly; it is where we build family memories.  So many of our inside jokes have happen at the table.  I could share a couple, but you just wouldn’t get them.

It was a small thing, but having the leaf in the table made last night’s dinner special.  It was a milestone because expanding the table allowed us all to sit together, as a family.
