dinner discussions

I find this slightly ironic to post tonight since Hubby wasn't home tonight for dinner. And won't be tomorrow. Or Thursday. Maybe on Friday though.

I really want to make a jar full of conversation starters. The Bear is little, but he's starting to be able to communicate with us. I don't need the conversations to be at a 2 year old level though. I remember my parents had a little flippy book thing on our table when I was a kid that had a question to jump start dinner.

Anyone have any suggestions for questions? They can be serious or silly or somewhere in between. I want to get as many as possible. Hubby is never consistently home for dinner, but it would be nice to have when he is here. And, if it takes us 9 years to get through them all I'm cool with that, too.

This question makes me think of that movie with Bruce Willis and Michelle Phiefer, The Story of Us. At dinner each of the family members would share their high for the day and their low for the day. My husband loved this idea and likes to implement it whenever he remembers. Which is tough because we don't have a regular dinner schedule and we rarely all eat the same thing cause the boys are still so picky about their food. Anyways, that is the only suggestion that comes to mind :)

We play, "Would You Rather"

Would you rather eat a bug or eat a worm.

Would you rather be stranded on an island with all of the hats in the world or all of the socks in the world.

It is fun!

We also did the high and low thing too!
