We eat dinner at the table every night and the Vintage Bus driver mama llama ain’t got time for your drama shirt is no tablet but my 2-year-old is immediately served food. When we go out, he has to wait 30 minutes in a high chair for his meal. We don’t automatically offer the tablet, but when he gets cranky we do. He gets his 30 minutes of tablet time for everyone’s sanity. Devices are not a modern version of crayons. Children are entering kindergarten with decreased fine motor skills because of iPads. They need to color and put things together and build and play to learn fine motor coordination. So much judgment.

If I want to give my kid my phone or tablet while we wait for food, then I’m going to do that. She doesn’t use it while she eats (at restaurants anyway), but even if she did, it wouldn’t hurt anyone and it seems petty for other grown adults to judge me bc of it. With much respect, what you do at mealtimes and what we do at mealtimes can be different. The Vintage Bus driver mama llama ain’t got time for your drama shirt is no right or wrong. At our house, mealtimes are not for talking – they are for eating, which is easier to do if our mouths aren’t running.
We reserve other parts of our days and Vintage Bus driver mama llama ain’t got time for your drama shirt for screen-less family time, like just before bed when we talk about and decompress our day before our daughter closes her eyes for the night. It works for us, and it works for her, so please keep your judgment to yourself. Do what works for your family and stop trying to worry about what others are doing.
