I’m excited to be a part of a project that’s been brewing for a while and officially launched yesterday – Blog for Family Dinner. Between now and Oct. 24, 2011, Blog for Family Dinner, or #B4FD as it’s also known, will feature a guest post from a different blogger each day. Each post will focus on family dinner. I’m really looking forward to reading the wisdom that each person brings to the discussion.
Even on the not-so-best-of-nights, when the conversation is flat, or everyone is mute, grumpy, rushed and stressed. Even when all you have to serve is leftovers and the kids are complaining, it’s worth it. Even when one of the kids gets in trouble and is sent to their room (door slam) while the rest of the family finishes eating, it’s worth it.
If I waited for the perfect night or for all the stars to line up just right, dinner would never happen. If I waited for that effervescent feeling to rush over me every night at 5 o’clock to waltz into the kitchen to start cooking, uh, we would starve.
