But this also depicts my memories of mealtimes with my two sons when they were little. There was a period of about six months when they would get so silly and so gross, we scarcely made it through a dinner without having to send one or the other away from the table. As parents, we felt obliged to civilize them, but in truth, they were often hilarious. Still are, though not nearly as gross any more.
