In Defense of Kitchen Tables  July 23, 2013 – 10:06
Kitchen Tables Womanly Page

When I grew up I ate fish sticks and tater tots for dinner almost every night. I don’t remember exactly but I think that the word fish on the box of fish sticks had an asterisk by it.

Captain Billy’s Fish* Sticks

*No fish were harmed in the making of this product because there are no fish in it. Seaweed? Yes. Fish? No way.



Captain Billy

We didn’t eat at the table very much either. We ate in the living room off of these miniature fold out tables called TV trays while watching reruns of Mama’s Family. That aspect of my childhood disqualifies me from ever being able to serve as the President of the United States. Or be a teacher. Or a pastor. Don’t tell my church.

My kids have it different. They’re growing up with homemade bread. No fish* sticks. No Mama’s Family.

And no TV trays.

Instead, we eat at our kitchen table. But it’s more than just a kitchen table. It’s a seminary classroom. This isn’t really by my design. It’s not like I make my four-year-old parse a Greek verb or defend the doctrine of election before he passes the potatoes. That doesn’t come until he turns five. For now, the questions just seem to come naturally.

“Dad, did God know that Adam and Eve would sin?”

“Dad, will we have jobs in Heaven?”

“Dad, how much does Jesus love us?”

“Dad, is Gregg Allman a Christian? What about Dwight Yoakam?”

When I was a kid, eating dinner meant listening to the sounds of the television. Now it means listening to the curious little boys sitting at the kitchen table. But it’s more than me listening to them. They’re listening to me too.

A few nights ago my son told me that he had something about God figured out.

Kids table

Can you see any problem with taking a round wooden table with four legs and cutting down the legs by about 9" to make a kids table out of a regular dining room table? The legs are spindles so I'd cut below a ring and then sand smooth...
I'm thinking that lowering the height would only make it more stable, right? There are loads of old kitchen tables for sale on CraigsList but very few kids tables...

Oh, what a time it was ...

Before Barbie ... before skateboards ... before computers and such electronic gadgets there was good ole fashion play and most times it was done without toys. It was you, a half-dozen other kids and a ton of imagination.
You built forts in the hay, under a sheet-skirted kitchen tables or inside the shipping crate of the recently delivered refrigerator.
You made up games ... using your imaginati...on and ingenuity you created a make-believe-world that did not require 3-d glasses or computerized interaction.
You dug holes ... you made mud pies ... you baptized the chickens
