Pinta set the table the other night. She drew flowers and a butterfly on the napkins and put out place cards. It looked very nice, and when she said to me, “Dad, can I get a pitcher?” I heard the sentence,“Dad, can I get a picture,” a liability of being a food blogger. When I reached for my camera, she said, “No a water pitcher!”
So, if your kids are ever looking for something to do before dinner, have them set the table. Give them the knives and forks and napkins, but don’t forget the markers.
