The other night at dinner, a Monday night mind you, I asked my husband if he wanted to enjoy a glass of wine during dinner. As I was getting out the wine glasses, Ben asked if he could use a wine glass too. I immediately said no. Our wine glasses are very thin and would break easily if dropped. He didn’t really whine about it, just asked why not. I explained why and he was fine with it. But then I thought to myself, self, this is a time to be a fun mom. Just make them happy.
So I busted out the box of plastic champagne flutes we got the day we moved into our house, and poured the boys’ milk into them. They were thrilled and it was a really nice, relaxed, fun dinner. I’m so glad I said yes for a change.
