Recently, I made two new dinner goals for our family: Listen to music and eat together. I know they might seem like small things, but they have really helped us slow down instead of rushing through dinner. I would always fly around the kitchen, trying to cook dinner as quickly as possible, so I never really enjoyed the experience. Now when I cook, I turn on some tunes, pour myself a glass of wine or flavored-seltzer, and, well, just slow the heck down. It really helps me relax and sets the tone for the rest of the evening. Plus, the boys pop in and out of the kitchen to keep me company (they are such clowns), so it’s a nice time for all.
