Why is it that kids need to have toys at the table? It has been a long standing rule at our house that toys do not belong with us while we were eating. Is because they think that the siblings are going to steal their possessions if left unattended. Which is probably true if you are the last to finish a meal.
Bear tried to justify this toy at the table. It is not a toy Ma, it is a crocodile. In my mind I debated the argument myself. He was eating carrots, asking for seconds, quiet, and not bugging anyone else. Why I am trying to start a battle? Is my rule of no toys at the table going to be an issue if I give in today?
So like any good mom, I took some pictures and than said that the crocodile had to eat elsewhere and not the table. He might try to eat someones fingers. Or worse you. No Ma he can't eat me, the crocodile is a toy. Well than, my rule is no toys at the table. Surprisingly he said OK and put it on the counter top.
Wow, did I really win without a battle.?.
