Polite Meals

I was traveling this week and got this amazing email from David one night, which absolutely made my day, week, and month. Some very useful tips here.

And really, how awesome are my 3 boys?!?

Here is the email I received:

The boys and I made this list over dinner on what makes a polite meal. We can remind each other of this while we practice polite eating. Most of these were suggested by the boys, so they know what to do.

Polite Meals

Eat nicely
Use your utensils
Don’t swing your arms around
Sit up straight
No fighting
Share news about the day
Don’t stare at someone while they’re chewing
Use your napkin
Don’t play with your food
Don’t get up before you’re excused
Listen when someone is talking to you
Wash your hands after you eat
Don’t eat other people’s food
Don’t talk while you’re chewing
Don’t chew with your mouth open
