Dinner Time Conversations

Experts say that the most important thing families can do to stay connected is to eat dinner together on a regular basis. We do, but based on recent dinner time conversations, I don’t know if it is having the intended effect on my family.

These are snippits of recent conversations from our dinner table.

The players: Son #1 (age 16), Son #2 (age 13) and Son #3 (age 9)

Son #2: Mom, what does “going to hell in a hand basket” mean?

Me: It’s just an expression.

Son #2: Yeah, but what does it mean?

Son #3: It just means you’re going to hell.


Son #3: I’m going to be surprised when I get to heaven and see my family there.

Me: Don’t you mean excited? You’re going to be “excited” to see your family in heaven.

Son #1: No, I think he’s in for a few surprises, mom.


Hubby: What kind of baked beans are these?

Me (who doesn’t eat baked beans): I don’t know. They’re baked beans.

Hubby: Yeah, but are they homestyle or regular?

Me: I don’t know. They came in a can and it said baked beans on the side of it. Does it matter?

Hubby: Well, yeah. There is a difference.

Son #1: Yeah, these taste funny.

Son #3: Don’t worry everybody, they’ll still make you fart.


Ah, those precious moments that family memories are made of.                   Bon Appetit!

    Hahaha!!! “They’ll still make you fart!” Love it! That one made me laugh out loud at work. All 3 of your sons are pretty funny. 🙂

    I can hear ’em now! Never a dull moment at your household, huh? Love ’em all.

  3. I do so miss those dinner conversations. My three 13, 14, and 20 no longer sit together at dinner. We are no longer home at the same time to eat together.

    Not a dull dinner at your house! Still make you fart, totally too funny.

  4. i LOVE the first and the last!
