From the Parent Cue Blog:

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR FAMILY’S DAILY RHYTHM (PART 3).

By Sarah Anderson


I hit the jackpot when I got married. My husband can cook—not only is he able, he’s good. On our first anniversary, he recreated the coconut French toast we had on our honeymoon. He makes a mean blackberry reduction with a pecan crusted chicken, and don’t get me started on his Coca-Cola cake. Oh man.

But there’s a problem. With the exception of the cake, these aren’t exactly kid friendly recipes. Instead, meal time is less about our discerning palate and more about survival. About trying to anticipate the needs of our children before we settle in to the table so we aren’t running a virtual relay race between the kitchen table, the refrigerator, the sink, the paper towels, and sometimes even the laundry room. Meal time at our house can quickly revert to just getting a basic need met, as opposed to a time that has any real sense of purpose.

The truth is, meal time will always be a challenge. During the younger years it’s a circus. As kids get older it becomes a scheduling feat to get everyone around the table. With little to no effort meal time can lose any potency it has fairly easily. And that means we have to fight for it.

So how do we make meal time matter?
