Deep Thoughts...on Dinner

I'm fairly certain that I am looking forward to the day

when my dinner (or lunch, for that matter...)

will consist of more than

the scraps

from my three boys' plates.

My dinner will be more than

the food that they decided

they 'just did not feel like eating on this particular evening'.*

(*Yes, that came straight from Colin's mouth)

And I'm also quite certain that

the afore-mentioned dinner

will actually be more than barely luke-warm;

it will be piping,

I so hear you! By the time I put dinner on the table tonight, Caleb had finished eating and was falling asleep in his high chair. So I put his jammies on, nursed him, put him in bed and got back to the kitchen only to clear the table and load the dishwasher! Oh for a hot meal - guess those are saved only for dates with the hubby! :)

Isn't it amazing how we moms will eat stuff left on our kids' plates that we would NEVER eat otherwise? Like soggy grilled cheeses or cold french fries? Or half eaten bananas and apples with little bites taken out of them?

Yeah, I can relate.
