Couch to Couch

Recently, there have been few meals we have sat down to eat as a family where one of the children does not end up in either my lap or Elise's lap. As you might imagine--especially if it is Sam, but now even Pete and Clem as they, too, sprout up--this makes eating one's own dinner extremely difficult. 

Mostly out of sheer necessity to eat, Elise suggested to Clementine one day, "Why don't you just pull your chair up to mine. Like a couch."

Now, we get frequent requests to eat 'couch to couch', our chairs pulled right up next to the kids' so that it makes one big, contiguous cushion like, well, a couch.
