The 13 Shalt Nots of the Dinner Table

The 13 Shalt Nots of the Dinner Table

You know you have little ones in the house when you find yourself inventing dinner table rules like these . . . 1. Thou shalt not pull out a tooth at the table. 2. Thou shalt not moan, sigh, wail, slump to the floor, or say the words “gross,” “ew,” or “I hate” in reference to anything on your plate. This makes thy mother cry. 3. Thou shalt not lick the table.
