Family Traditions

I don't know what started all this, but a while back at the dinner table I asked my kids "What was your favorite part of the day?"  Now we do it every day, and if by some freakish thing I forget, the kids will open the conversation.  

I think I started it as a way to include them in the conversation.  I try to start with a different kiddo each day, and we go around the table telling what our "thing" was....   H & I are also asked to produce a suitable response, and "eating dinner" is not a suitable response if you're being grilled by a 7 year old.  Even if you spent the day doing laundry and homework.

But what cracks me up is B-ridge.  Consider asking a 3 year old what was her favorite part of the day?  And she cracks me up every time...  

"My favorite part d'day said.... when we go to the pool and pay with O'Lidia and her brodder... mom, what her brodder's name?"

ROFL. My favorite part used to be nap time. Now I enjoy the early morning snuggling.
