I never thought I would be the kind of parent who lets her family eat while staring at a screen. I also never thought I'd have a husband and three children, or that I would end up settling in South Carolina. But life comes at you fast, as they say, and so you go with it — and my family loves sports.
Only some of us like playing them (not it!), but we all enjoy watching, pulling for a team together, or not-so-gently ribbing each other when we're on opposite sides. It's fun, and watching a game doesn't stop the conversation — it inspires it. So while I have a strict "no television at the dinner table" rule, sports are my exception.
