The Table: Where Our Family Comes Together

Posted by   + Show Post

We have three kids. 

Age 13, 10 and 7. 

Because of these three kids our table has been front and center in our family for years.

It was where we gathered to celebrate.

It's where we napped.

It was where we taught the kids to attack with their kung-fu. HI-YAAA

We've eaten our meals there and had our conversations, but we have done so much more at that table.

We did school projects,

We drew art .

There were countless glue sticks and markers.

There were shin guards worn.

There was fingernail polish aplied.

There were bandaids placed on imaginary wounds.

The table was a base for a fort.

It was the "home" for a rousing game of tag.

It has been a fairy woodland, a battlefield and the jungle wilds.

It was the first place our kids played Uno, Sorry and Monopoly.

In retrospect, the meals served there are the least important things thst have taken place some days.

 Its where each of my kids have had their first baths in their little tubs. Its where each of my kids will learn their abcs and how to write their names. Its where weve had the funnest conversations, and made the biggest messes. Our kitchen table is pretty important in our world.

 That cake is the coolest thing EVER! My greatest memory is my oldest son's second birthday. I still cherish the pics from that day - him in a diaper making a mess in his cake and me and his dad laughing and cleaning. :o)
