Denied entry

Scene from our dinning room tonight:

We are just finishing dinner. There is a knock on the door and Husband gets up. Little J follows.

It is the neighbor’s girls. Husband returns to the table and Little J tells his friends:

“We are having dinner so I cannot come out to play. Also you cannot come in until we finish eating.”

My neighbor catches up with her daughters and asks Little J if he can pass something on to me. As you can imagine Husband and I are laughing at the table, trying hard not to.

“OK, I will give this to mama. We are having dinner, salmon. I am not finished. So you cannot come in.”

At this point I got up and invited Mrs. A in. Little J quickly had his last few bites. Kids played and had fun. We sat and drank wine. But honestly I have no idea what made my son so adamant about dinner time being sacred. Maybe he remembered the time I took the girls home . Maybe piggy bank is working. Or maybe, just maybe he is actually starting to enjoy dinner time.

  1. So serious Little J…salmon is clearly the dinner-time way forward! Whatever works…Mac and cheese in our house… 😉 x

      Hard to believe but Little J hates mac’n’cheese. But I guess salmon he can live with.

    It’s like the dinner police live in your house. Your son was very sweet though when he told the girl that she could not come in because he was eating salmon.

      Yes, dinner time is a lot of thing, but superb fun it is not. We try, we fail. But then moments like these perk us up.

  3. Lots of teachers demand to analyse the writing technique, thence, we have to opt for dissertation writing to purchase history dissertation. In such way students substantiate academic level. And also you should bring thesis.
