Whomever helps me set the table gets to designate where everyone sits. Of recent, one of the four year old girls is eager to help. Such power to determine the fate of where everyone sits, what kind of place-mat they get, and what design of cloth napkin!
Apparently, Hubby is semi-famous for his perfect toast.
The breakfast table conversation is also quite entertaining - oh what is important to 4-9 year old kids. I have taught them all my morning growl as well. That always generates a smile.
It can be hectic getting everyone going and then off to school but thus far, we haven't been tardy to school once - close a couple times, though!
