We never have time to sit and eat as a family. Always trying to get things done. Well today, I really tried for a family dinner. I spent the whole day cooking. I made chicken in a cast iron frying skillet that was my grant grandmothers. I seasoned it and baked on the grill, til it fell off the bone. I made mash potatoes, broccoli rice, homemade noodles and gravy, and a few other things. I worked so hard and do you think anyone ate no. My 2 year old she is picky, my 4 year old wanted a corn dog and well for my husband by the time he finished what he was doing the food was cold. I'm not sure if times have changed, but for me growing up as a kid, we always had home cook meals and we also ate together. (mom, dad, my 2 brothers and I). Am I old fashion? I don't know. Am I asking to much? I'm not sure. I grew up where my mom didn't have to work and well I work from home to be with my kids. I always thought my parents instill great values into us as children and that is what I want for my family. Am I old fashion being in my 40's with little ones. Does no one sit and have family dinner anymore? Not sure? I just feel very disappointed not in my kids( because they are little) but more in my husband.
