Table Manners

The Husband and Elder Son have long legs.  At meals, we try to arrange seating so they are not opposite each other at the table and fighting for the same leg room.  Still...

When The Husband accidentally kicked Elder Son, he apologized, "I was stretching my legs.  My feet don't have enough room."
I further explained, "Because his mouth is full of food."

Elder Son understood exactly what I meant, and he even told me I was very clever.

I personally think it's a beautiful thing when the kids get all the jokes. It makes dinner time that much funnier.

Ahhh... You have given me food for thought (and a snicker)... my boys are getting bigger, I can see this as a problem in the future.
