Good to know the dinner routine didn't skip a beat despite all the vacation meals and chaos. Put together a nice dinner of lasagna and corn on the cob and Evan immediately announced "I don't like lasagna" (he announces this at the start of almost every meal, yet scarfs it down like he hasn't eaten in a week). So as I sit at the table prompting him to eat lasagna so he can have corn on the cob (yes, I bribe my child with vegetables), Eric sucks down his entire portion of lasagna, plus half of mine. More prompting to Evan as I cut the corn off the cob for Eric. Ethan comes in, bypasses the lasagna, and goes straight to the corn on the cob. Sigh.
In the end, everyone ate lasagna and then corn. But I'm not sure it was worth the effort :-)
