Keep it in place

I make dinner for my family most night, but we do get stuck on conversations. They only like to give up so much about their days, and it seems like almost everyday it’s “School was okay we did this and that, jeez MOM!” Mr. MITK and I both try and engage them in conversations about anything and it might be the age, but it’s usually rebuffed.

Lately they do want to discuss Martin Luther King, Jr., Barack Obama, several US presidents of the past and Harriet Tubman. It’s all about historical figures. Pretty cool to me, but in the same vein I’d like to know a bit more about what they think about life and topic I throw at them. Not just history, though I love hearing it.

Mat Chats it’s a pretty fun take on an idea what you look at and smack your head and say “Why didn’t I think of that?”
A place mat with questions on it for you and your family to enjoy and answer together dinner fun!
A myriad of topics for family and situation, some examples follow.

• Attitude
• Friendship
• Fun/Work
• Gratitude
• Health
• Attitude
• Mindfulness
• Vision

The mats were a great conversation starter which spiraled into many other conversations. It’s always interesting and informative to learn what your kids know at and thing. I can still enjoy it, they aren’t scaring me yet!
I hope you get one to try and have a great family dinner … together!

Who am I?

Well, aside from a mom and a wife, I'm a person who wants the best for all of us. I have two daughters, two dogs, and a husband – all of whom I wanted to be at home for – so I put my talents to use, looking out for my family. Shopping (well, kinda you send me the products!). Surfing the Internet. Meeting new people. Recommending products to friends, after I fall in love with them. And figuring out how to make products better.
