Family Dinners

September 9th, 2008 · by sarra · 1 Comment

We decided that Link is old enough to move his bedtime back a bit, and try to start having family dinners. Also, I was tired of eating my dinner at 8:30pm.

Last night, I prepared meatloaf with spinach for the grown-ups and green beans for Link. When he came to the table he complained that he didn’t want meatloaf, so I gave him the option of sitting in his room until after dinner and going to bed hungry. He reconsidered his stance.

I’m not going to force him to eat what we’re eating unless it’s something I know he’d eat anyway (like meatloaf). So I will probably be making two dinners most nights, but I’d be doing that anyway so it’s no big deal.

After the rocky start we had a lovely family dinner, in which everyone cleaned their plate and Link even used his spoon. And best of all, he was still in bed by 7:30.

    I am very happy that now we will all be eating together. Well, when ever we manage to get there.
    Good for Sarra and Alex, and good for Link!
