#TeachersWrite Day 1: My White Page Day

Family Time

Through the eyes of 9 year olds —

Dinner in front of TV

or at the table with no distractions

Family time?

TV dinners warmed,  quickly and easily

Or home-cooked meals made from scratch

All made with love for the family?

Silence as they eat

watching “Modern Family”

Or conversation

about the lives of each person

around the table

as they dine

Are they the modern family of this time?

Learning the heart of mom and dad, brothers and sisters

or comparing yourself only to tv

The sparkle in the eyes of one you love

when they share a special moment

The mumble of words as an actor relays

a fictitious moment in their faux life

Priceless time as a family?
