What ever happened to the art of conversation? Now whenever I go out with friends or other couples I feel like everything turns to celebrity gossip or work. Once upon a time I am sure we had something meaningful to say, things that sparked ideas and generated thoughts other than the latest style or beauty product. Not to mention that dinner time isn't always the easiest or stress free event at our house. Most of the time dinner conversation consists of meltdowns and me praying for silence. The solution??
Enter The Box Girls, moms and long time friends who were searching for that exact solution and just so happened to stumble upon it one night. Spontaneous questions that included everyone and boom...The Box of Questions was born.
"The questions didn't rely on trivia like the latest on ESPN, Brangelina or American Idol. They delved into serious, thought-provoking issues including ethics and morality, charity and history as well as a strong appreciation for the bonds that tie together family and society."
Although my two little guys are a bit young to participate, it doesn't take much effort to manipulate a few questions here and there to get my three year old in on the action. The Family Dinner Box of Questions if my favorite. It is not every night we get to enjoy dinner as a complete family. But when we do, it is nice to know we can create lasting memories around the conversations that take place.
