Our family has a rule. We all need to sit at the dining table and eat our meals. A seemingly trifle rule to some but one that holds great place of honor in our home, mainly because we have so many wonderful food-related memories and fantastic conversations that have sparked off as a result of the same.
I have to admit it hasn’t always been an easy chore especially when our kids were younger. My little man (who is now 3) has provided enough entertainment as a 1 year old thanks to his eyes always being bigger than his tummy at the time! If big sis had something in her plate, he needed to have the same. If she was drinking something out of a glass, he needed to be drinking the same too. The result?
Colorful messes! Tons of photographs!…
And priceless milk moustaches!! (I know. The debate of moustache vs. mustache…never ends!)
My son is famous for them. He has pictures of him sporting one in practically every color, shape and size! My daughter on the other hand was a cleaner eater. I think it was also because she was our first child and we were the over-protective parents who wanted to make sure she stayed clean, germ free, ick free. Poor thing…we robbed her of messy food fun and milk moustache memories!

I’m thinking I may enter the story of how my then 2 year old refused to eat watermelon chunks pre-served into bowls but chose to help himself to the halved watermelon sitting on the kitchen table, armed with a spoon and an appetite! (Oh and I have to add here that he knew that the pits needed to be spat out, so made sure he spat them out back into the pool of watermelon juice he’d created in the halved shell!)
