We have a love/hate relationship with memes pertaining to love, but every once in a while, we come across one that sparks a fascinating discussion. This one targets families, specifically moms, at dinner time. It raised the question of whose plate you should prepare first: your husband or your kids?
Amongst my coworkers, everyone agreed the kids should absolutely eat first if a mom ever finds herself in the position where she has to choose. However, I don’t think I fully understand why moms need to choose or why it’s so important.
Growing up, for the most part, we ate as a family and everyone’s plates were usually prepared before my dad or mom called us to the dinner table. These days, everyone at my mama’s house might eat at different times, but if it comes down to it, my mom is making my dad’s plate first, and for obvious reasons. At this point, both my brother and I are grown and capable of fending for ourselves.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this? Who do you feed first: your man or your kids? Does it really matter whose plate is prepared first?
