I'm taking back the supper table!

OK~ I realized last night at the supper table, this Mom has lost control of meal time.  19 year old is texting, 14 year old is texting- Hubby- to top this off- is listening to some pod cast on his I-Phone!  What????  I had actually cooked a meal and this is how it went!  Have you lost control of meal time at your house?  This Mom has got to get it back.  It's a rare occasion when all four of us actually sit down to eat together, due to work schedules.  Blaine, who is 19, works in a restaurant, so he is quite often not home for meals.  On this rare occasion, this is what I witness.  I guess this is 2010. right?  After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. Oh that is one of my biggest fears, to lose control over dinner time. Having dinner together without distraction is so important to me. My son is only 5 months but I figure we better start now if we want a chance.

  2. You know I guess I am a product of the technology age, but stuff like what you just described bugs the crap out of me. I can not stand when people can not have meal, conversation or grocery store trip wihout burying themselves in their phones. COME on!!! Turn it off for 20 minutes! I get so mad at my mom for this behavior! She is terrble about it! Good for you for taking back dinner!!!

  3. Oh dear I am soooo in trouble - I don't even have a supper table at this time, does coffee table or lap in front of laptop count :( I do miss the days when we sat down to dinner at a set time all together.

  4. I guess I was lucky when my youngest son was 14 (10 years ago) the technology wasn't as advanced. It was hard enough getting everyone together for dinner due to school, sports, and work schedules. Sometimes it takes a lot of work to have dinner together when the kids are growing up but it is so worth it. Both my sons are grown & live out of town now so those dinners together are precious memories.
