A Habit

Mr. Honey started the sweetest custom when we were first married. He kisses me on my right cheek every night after dinner and says, "Good dinner, Mrs. Honey." He really does this every night, and has since we got married. He is a man of habit and routine. I would have gotten bored with the whole thing after a month or two and left off, but with his constancy he has started a tradition.

In the last couple of years, the kids have begun thanking me for the meal in this way occasionally as well.

And as they have become more and more interested in helping with the meals, they insist that Daddy kiss them too. It is understood to be the boon of the hands that prepare food, and is desired as such.
