Assignment for Day 23: Dinner Conversations!
As a child living at home we always had lunch together, it was our main meal of the day and we were required to be there and participate with a willing attitude. At times it was difficult especially as we grew older and everyone schedule threatened to steamroller our intentions, but it’s also something I think back on with great fondness.
In our own house we now have a dinner time tradition which I saw on a movie once. We do a version of “high/low” where you have to share what the high- and lowlight of the day was, everyone has to share about their day. The highlight usually brings a smile to my face and sometimes the lowlight breaks my heart, but it’s a gentle reminder from a little girl that she needs us in her life as her cheerleaders.
So for tonight, during dinner, strike up a conversation, ask questions and invite honest answers with a willing heart.
Here are some questions to get you started:
Favourite place to be in the whole world?
What scares you?
What makes you unhappy?
What makes you happy?
What is your most favourite thing to do?
Favourite part of today?
Least favourite part of today?
What do you think we should do this weekend?
Remember that mommy and daddy has to take part in answering too!
I love hearing from you, leave a message or send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell me how difficult or easy today's assignment was for you!
