  • My husband is working on his doctorate right now, so it really depends on how busy he is. We always have the Sabbath as family time, but generally Sunday he studies. He comes home for lunch, so we always have lunch and dinner as family time, and many nights he spends time with us.

  • I don't really understand the question I guess. We don't have set family times, we just play it be ear. I mean he likes playing video games, but majority of the time, when he's home we're watching TV as a family, while we watch we play puzzles, read books, eat toy food, etc with our daughter. If we decide to play Wii, she plays too. We have a homemade Wii balance board for her so she can do what we do, and we also give her turns playing Wii fit and other games. Pretty much everything we do is family time.

  • We both have thursdays off, so at least every thursday is family day. Then if there happens to be another day that we both have off than we usually like to have family time then too. Then of course every night...we take turns doing the bedtime routine with our son.

  • He's here in the evenings(after 630-7pm) and his day off is Sunday.

    We dont really do much in the way of active family time. Usually just watching tv or hitting the store.

  • Oh ok, I'd say at least an hour and a half a weekday, and several hours on weekends. We normally go do something on weekends, either to a museum, the aquarium, parks, etc. So that means either Saturday or Sunday we spend the entire day as family time. Weekdays, we play in the toddler's room with her, cook together, go for walks on nice days. I'm pretty lucky actually, most guys that play WoW don't spend that much time with the family.

  • My SO has to go away for work so we rarely have family time.. it all depends on if he's home.
    When he's home - Every night, SO,DD and myself have dinner together and spend time with eachother.
    When he's gone - once a month.

  • Everyday, When my daughter comes home from school and my older daughter comes home from college and her fiance' finally comes out of his room, we all sit in the living room and catch up on the day, help with homework, have dinner together and watch something on tv, play with our 2 year old, play some games together, lately it's been Uno Attack and racing on the Wii. Nothing exciting, but I love it. I am SOOO proud of my older daughter, well obviously all of them, but she is graduating college next week!
