  • I do. I dish everyone up at the same time, all the plates at once. Delegating helps. I'm a single parent, but my 7 yr old will pour the drinks while I dish up the food. My 5 yr old likes to stir the chocolate into chocolate milk if we have that, so they both feel like they're contributing. :) I've never had a problem eating my meal while it's still warm.

  • I've never yet eaten a cold meal. Even when I had babies I made sure they were fed right before dinner was ready and then if they were old enough they would get to sit in the high chair with some fruit puffs or something while we ate dinner.

  • I havn't had a hot meal since I got married. Kid's just made it cold. By the time I fiz y husbands plate, bring it in to him and then get his drink, he wants seconds. Then, I have to feed DD and she usually wants seconds. Fill up hubby's drink, fix him some desert, then sit down and eat. They are nice enough to stay at the table while Ieat though, thanks alot guys. I love that we eat dinner the table together though.
