I'm trying to get the kids up early enough to eat breakfast together as a family- I teach 4 evenings a week so dinner isn't consistent

No, you aren't crazy. My kid is only 2, so we're just working on him not un-setting the table for us. I'm not sure it would be a good idea for me to print out your graphic for my husband, though...

Hi Sarah - I like that your son is unsetting the table.  Its a cute, but frustrating stage, for sure.

Jan Scott

How great that you can eat breakfast together.  What a wonderful way to start the day.
