Eating Together

In case you are capable of ignoring the non-news, the 'experts', whoever they may be, are constantly telling us that we all need to SIT DOWN and EAT WITH OUR KIDS. I do try to do this, sort of, with a toddler and an infant. The problem is that by the time I get to the SIT DOWN part I'm so exhausted from getting the food and cutting it and cooling and "Mama I want wawer! In a glass!" that I just plop down and pull out something to read while I eat.

I don't think this is what the experts intended. But really, the talking is starting to exhaust me hourly.
(After I hang up the phone in the car)
"Mama, who were you talking to?"
"Why were you talking to Grandma?"
"Because I like to."
"Why do you like to?"
"Because I love Grandma."
"Why do you love Grandma?"
"Because Grandma is nice"
"Why is Grandma nice?"
"Because she loves us." (screw the circular logic here, I was TRAPPED IN A WHY LOOP!)
"Why does she love us?"
"Lord only knows, kid, Lord only knows."


"Why does Lord only know?"
