Does anyone else have children who sit half in/half out of their chairs when they eat? It is a constant battle in this house. They are always perched, on one knee or one cheek.
I asked them tonight after the millionth request to sit down…all the way:
“Is there a reason you never sit down? You are always ready to run… like there’s always a chance of imminent danger and you might have to run out the door in mid-bite?”
They thought this was hilariously funny. Then they sat down. For a few minutes at least.
My jack-in-the-box children.
