Let there be toys at the table

I remember when I was little, my mother would always say, "No toys at the table."  I remember being upset that my Barbie or a favorite stuffed animal couldn't join me at lunch.

Well, I say...Let there be toys at the table!

As my girls grew up and as a nanny, I have banished the No Toys at the Table Rule.  I believe that kids eat better if their toys are on the table and many good conversations are sparked from the toys' presence.  There have been many imaginative stories made up about animals at the table as well as conversations about what different animals eat.

So let the toys come to the table...you may be amazed what happens.
