  • we're a mess. my kids eat about 745 alone but I hang out with them and nibble/snack at what they're eating so we can chat and tell stories. I eat alone about 11 right before I goto bed and DH eats at work about 1am! On his nights off we eat at the big table or lay out a huge blanket and have a picnic,

  • we all eat together my DD eats what we do now so we all eat together it's easier and we all love it. Even when she was on the baby food we all sat at the table together. Yes, I am a little old fashion.

  • Depends on the day and what we have going on. We really need to get into a routine.

  • We always eat together unless he is out of town. Dinner in my house is at 6pm prompt.

  • We eat together unless my husband works til 8, and we are hungry before that. I eat with my son and we just added my baby daughter to the table too! My mother raised us to all eat together always, she used to get very upset when we all started working and some of us werent home to eat, lol.

  • We eat together no matter what time dh gets home from work. If he works late then the kids get a snack to hold them over.

  • I always wait for my hubby. I don't care what time he comes home, I wait. Unless he calls and tells me to go ahead and eat without him.

  • If we waited for DH we'd be waiting a LOOOONG time. He usually gets home around 9 or 10 and the kids and I ate around 6.
