The topic I chose today for TTMT is one Mike and I discussed last week, and I was eager to talk about today with all of you.
Do you sit down as a family at the table for dinner? Or breakfast?
This is something that has been VERY hard for us over here, especially since Rocco was born.
Mike has a super busy job, which leads to later nights and him not being able to sit with us for dinner. Rocco when he was first born, that was hard for us to all sit and eat a meal together.
THe BIG factor though is Mike working late, and Anthony and I having to eat dinner at our normal time. So that means, no Mike at the table with us.
I also have to say, we have been bad at really trying to all sit together on the occasion it could happen. So we have failed at that, but I am glad we can see that.
Mike and I thought since dinner can be crazy to all sit down together, that we should start doing a Sunday breakfast tradition. On Sunday Mike is always home, and we all are up at a decent time to eat breakfast together. We know how important traditions like this are to family, and it will be good for the boys! Anthony, Mike, and I always used to sit for dinner when we could. I feel bad the last few months have been hard to do that, but now with the Sunday breakfast tradition we can all have that to look forward to!
Of course, I really want us all to sit together for dinner too, that is going to be a goal of ours too when it can happen.
I look forward to this Sunday tradition, and know memories are all we have in life. As well as family is all we have.
Do you find it hard for you and your family to sit together for a meal?
Anyone have a meal tradition they do, like our Sunday breakfast idea?
As always, appreciate the feedback! <3
