Farewell to Table for Four

Original post made by Jennifer Fogliani, Whisman Station, on Jan 8, 2012

On Saturday, we celebrated our last weekend as a family of four by going out to dinner. Nine months pregnant, exhausted and overwhelmed by hormones, I got choked up when we walked into our favorite fish restaurant. Not only was it going to be our last time saying table for four, but it was going to be our children's last time sitting at a table with our undivided attention.

This is a really great piece. Heartfelt, humble, and a great reminder as to why siblings are worth the squabbles. Good luck with the new baby!
