Yes, we sometimes eat dinner in the living room while watching TV.
Bad parent of the year award, I know. But is there really a better way to eat pizza on a family movie night?
When we eat at the coffee table, Nicholas likes to be in charge of getting out coasters for our drinks. We have two different sets of coasters. He will pick out specific ones for each of us, different ones each time. Sometimes he just picks out ones he likes. Other times he says that certain ones are magic and give us special powers.
I recently printed some pictures from Snapfish and they offered me a free set of custom printed coasters. I couldn’t resist! Since we often use the coasters while eating, I picked out 6 pictures of Nicholas eating.
The coasters arrived quickly and I told Nicholas that I had a surprise for him. He couldn’t wait to open his package. He had several guesses about what I had gotten for him but oddly enough a set of coasters never crossed his mind.
Kids love to see pictures of themselves so needless to say, Nicholas was thrilled to see his own picture on our new set of coasters!
This is definitely a way to make meal time fun for kids!
