Dinner is (almost) served
Use the forks, Luke
London, ON, July 2009
Around my kids, a white napkin is never white for long. The pristine table is infinitely less photogenic once they're through with it. I don't share this as a complaint, mind you. It's just the way it is when you're a munchkin, and I'd have it no other way. If we're keeping track of the things that we treasure, listening to the chaos of mealtime is one of those little blessings that makes our family life memorable.
Who would have thought a simple place-setting could touch off this kind of thought? Neat.
