The dining room table also offer so many opportunities to become closer to my girl. Games, wrapping gifts, decorating the cookies we just baked. What a great place to sit with no distractions and learn a new card game or how to print a sentence. These are things that help our children grow, and we get to watch it all.
I also enjoy having my friends over, we can sit for hours over a pot of coffee and plate of biscuits, sharing news of the neighbourhood, our families, and how very busy we all are. Theres something about sitting across from someone at a table that helps you focus on what you are doing and worry less about what's going later that day. It helps to spend quality time with people you may not get quanitity time with.
These are the places that memories are made. The living room is great for TV and dollies, but the kitchen and the dining room, they are where the food and the majic are.
