As a parent, I'm multi-tasking and trying to accomplish several things at the same time. I prepare home-made foods for my family. Once the food is ready, I grab a quick bite and usually fold the laundry or do some other household chore while the kids are finishing eating. I feel like I need to slow down.
Ready? Take a deep breath... It's OK to slow down. Mealtimes with the family can be your opportunity to do that. You're clearly in control, so if you choose to make mealtimes an important priority, then everything else can be organized around that.
And maybe folding laundry after the meal can be another activity that's done "better together"...
