OK~ We all know that life gets crazy and busy. Is the family dinner a thing of the past? I'm wondering....I hear and read of many parents that prepare special foods for their kids and they eat something else. Now that my boys are 16 and 20, they can pretty much make up their own decisions when it comes to meal times. If we are all home and dinner is on the table....we sit down together and eat.
My boys have rejected the plate in front of them a time or two over the years AND this Mom has not been afraid to direct them towards the jar of peanut butter and a loaf of bread. I am guessing that in the year 2011, this would be frowned upon. My boys have never had food allergies and if they did, this Mom was oblivious to them.
My question for you~ Curiosity is getting the best of me. When you have a meal for the whole family...is everyone expected to eat the same thing or do some family members eat different foods? I am all about simplicity, therefore; it perplexes me that many families opt for preparing special foods for their kids. Maybe it just so happens that I read a little too much and this should not even be something I'm writing about...Oh well......I'll keep fixing what I choose, as most of you know, I am NOT a good cook....After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
