Cortney said, “I’m a subscriber and Facebook fan.”
Leeanna said, “Our dinner time conversations always start with “what dumb thing did you do today?”. It started because I had a particulary bad day and I was telling them all the dumb things I did during the day and the kids thought it was so funny. So that is what is said everytime we sit down for dinner now…. humor always is good during dinner.”
Shannon P. said, “We usually can’t get them to STOP talking at dinner (or any other time, for that matter!). I love, love, love our family dinner times. It’s the only time everybody is sitting (relatively) still. My kids are 5, 3, and 1. We talk about our day, preschool, Kindergarten, what we’re doing that evening, what the schedule for the next day is, etc. And then we laugh … a lot … at all sorts of funny things they say and do. :)”
Laura P. said, “We start off with “So, how was your day?””
Aileen said, “Every night my two-year old asks Daddy “How was your day?” which is just so cute and endearing he can’t help but answer her then ask how her day was. Then we tell him all about what she did that day, which usually makes her smile and it builds her conversation skills and memory.”
Stouffer’s and Todd Parr, best selling author and illustrator, have teamed up to create a new limited edition children’s book called LET’S FIX DINNER…because they know that when families come together at dinnertime, wonderful things can happen.
Also, Todd Parr has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity (a community building service near and dear to our hearts) to help those a little less fortunate be able to experience the many benefits of family dinner. All net proceeds of the Let’s Fix Dinner book will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. (Yeah!)
This book has an EXCELLENT message about the importance of eating together as a family as often as you can. Not only do I love this book and its message, but the boys have gotten a kick out of the book, it’s fantastic illustrations…plus it’s easy to read. Perfect for early readers!
So we’re giving away 5 prize packs this week. Each prize pack includes a copy of Todd Parr’s Let’s Fix Dinner book, as well as a set of 4 matching “You are Invited for Dinner” placemats for your family.
