Setting the Table – My New Strategy…

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 20, 2012

Having my kids in the kitchen during “those final moments before dinner is on the table” is not ideal (for me anyways)…they trapse through the kitchen, leaving a trail of toys behind, causing me to almost trip. They dilly-dolly when it comes to getting spoons, cups, forks to the table. I want the boys to be responsible and helpful members of our family…so they set the table.

But I also don’t want them in my kitchen while I’m scooting to and fro getting dinner ready to put on the table.

Then I had an epiphany
