On a completely unrelated topic, I have a huge dilemma. I talked with Roy the other night about how we need to all eat dinner at the table every night together for about the millionth time. He said he agreed.Again. And then tonight I made dinner and he said he wasn't hungry and stayed on the couch watching tv while I ate with the kids. Right about when I was finished eating he got himself a plate and went and sat back down on the couch to eat. This is not the first time (in the past week even) that this has happened. He usually eats in front of the tv while I eat with the kids. I can't figure out what to do about this. This is pretty important to me but he doesn't seem to get it. How am I supposed to show Morgan it is important when her Dad won't even eat with us? I feel like putting up a sign that says "If you don't eat at the table when dinner is ready, you don't eat!!" but I don't think that would even get it across to him. Any suggestions???
