It's my birthday, and I got pie at work--yay!
I actually got what I think is about the best present ever last night, in that my whole little family sat down at the table and had a lovely home cooked meal, right down to bread in a basket getting passed around. I know it doesn't sound like much, but we have never really utilized our dining room table for anything but storage, and I have wanted to change that. So we did!
We lit a candle, we all sat down, the Honey muted the TV, and only kinda watched the football game. There was a little quiet music playing on the computer, and we were all eating THE SAME THING. No special kid food, just loaded Little O with peanut butter that afternoon so I wouldn't get all psycho about the lack of protein on her plate.
I am really striving for more nights like that, but it was lovely that the first night I really pulled it off without feeling frazzled was my birthday eve.
