How many times do you find yourself not actually sitting during a meal? We are doing so many other things and running around getting things that I feel like I spend 1/2 of the meal standing. When I found this image of Things mom has to do before she eats , from Nickmom, it was too good not to share! It gave me a laugh… that’s for sure! Can you relate?
Things Mom has to be do before she eats:
Prepare the mealDeny children snacks for the full half-hour before food is on the table.Call children to dinner.Call spouse to dinner.Watch as only 1/3 of the kids show up.Feed 1/3 of the children.Search for the last kid.Pour milk for children.Whoops, they wanted juice.Whoops, they spilled juice.Get the salt for someone.Get napkins for someone else.Sit down to eat.NOPE. Stand up to get a drink.While you’re up, get bread for someone.Sit down to eat.NOPE. Get the butter to go with the bread.Deny requests to be excused.Sit down to eat.NOPE. Go back to get a fork.Sit down to eat.Count to 10 to be safe.Eat*
