We've really been working on having good table manners. Sitting in a chair the entire time, eating with utensils, using napkins, not burping or farting, no toys, no rude comments about the food, etc.
Dowlan is having a terrible time of it. ;)
So last night is going really well, despite the menu featuring spaghetti. The girls are actually eating, not running in circles around the house between bites, and we did get the entire prayer respectfully said before the eating commenced.
Melody asks, "May I please be excutes to the potty?"
Excutes, excused, whatever.
Dowlan and I are commenting to each other how nice it is to actually have a decent, calm meal about the time that Melody shouts from the bathroom, "Sometimes it is really hard to poop! And then when you do it splashes up and gets your bottom wet!"
