Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
I have been trying to train my children during mealtime. Ya know: use your manners, take X number of bites of everything on your plate, don't grip about the meal, help clear the table, etc. As you may have guessed, it has been a struggle. I really am embarrassed about how they act at the table. And I cringe every time they eat at a friend's house. (Let me just apologize to any of you who are reading this and have entertained my children. Any of them. I am soooo sorry.)
So, last night we were eating dinner together. All was going well. Maybe that was because the kids actually liked the meal for once. Until Dimples started telling a story WITH HIS MOUTH FULL OF FOOD. I look at Nurse Boy, as if to say, "you take this one." Nurse Boy immediately corrects Dimples and tells him not to talk with his mouth full of food. Dimples and I start cracking up. You guessed it! Nurse Boy's mouth was FULL OF FOOD!
Honestly, I don't even know why I try.
