Don't they look so far away? It's the angle of the table, I think. Although, in reality it might be nice to have my kids 2 body lengths away from me during meals. Less "see food", more of a buffer, a more pleasant dining experience! We had homemade waffles this morning. And OJ. I love the day after grocery shopping, when you open the refrigerator and you have so many options, so much produce, so much food to choose from. Unlike the mornings when you haven't been grocery shopping for 7 days and all you have for breakfast is the heel of a loaf of bread--that you have to toast and divide three ways--and a drop of honey that is sticking to the counter top. Mmmmm. Gotta love those creative food days.
