Tonight we were all sitting down for dinner - all six of us. Three babies eating with a fork, food on a plate. One 4 7/8 year old who had to be told 15 times to shush and two parents who badly needed the quiet.
Scott and I looked around several times because it was too good to be true. The babies were concentrating on eating Shell Dinters casserole with their forks. They never threw their plates and a fork was dropped only once.
Jacob doesn't like casserole (or so he says), but we made him eat it anyway.
It was quiet for about 10 whole minutes.
It was so nice to eat in peace and not have whiners or beggars bothering me.
I can only hope it happens again sometime soon.
