Take My Child. Please.

You can keep him as long as it takes to civilize him.  I'm seriously considering sending Ten to charm school.

I've been trying for ten long years, and this child still resists the use of silverware.  Over the years, I have had to inform him (sometimes more than once) that the following are not finger foods:


  • orzo
  • Caesar salad (with dressing)
  • ice cream sundaes
  • linguine
  • ravioli
  • potatoes
  • butter

My sister always tells her children that the use of utensils is what separates us from the animals.

And as I say to Ten, "Take human bites!"

If your family will actually use the dinnerware and flatware you so carefully set on the table night after night, you'll love this deal on some pretty new patterns!  Save up to 77% at Pfaltzgraff on your choice of over 50 patterns through May 31, 2012!
