“I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the J.M. Smucker Company. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a to thank me for my participation.”
If you ever come to my house for dinner (and please know you’re always invited — I make a killer lasagna!), I have a few rules that everyone has to follow — no phone, texts or tv during the meal.
One bite of the lasagna and you really won’t care who’s texting you!
Now actually, this is a rule my parents had way back when we were kids — raising three teenagers during the dinner hour almost drove my Dad crazy with the constant phone calls.
So one simple rule was born — no calls during dinner!
“If it’s important, they’ll call back” my parents would always tell us. Not to mention, the people around the table were JUST as important as the people on the phone.
Dinner was time for our family to sit down and catch up with each other, talk about the day, plan for trips and take time to reconnect.
