Through the eyes of 9 year olds —
Dinner in front of TV
or at the table with no distractions
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”
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?
