  • Not sure what you are asking but we have dinner as a family, we all eat at the same time unless hubby is running late; then we eat before hand. I sit with hubby while he eats when he gets home.

  • 90% of the time we all eat together..But sometimes Hubby and I will buy some Filet Mignon and shrimp or lobsters and eat once the kids are in bed or give them something else to eat that night..Its important to eat as a family but its also important to have couple time w/ wine or drinks and gourmet  food as well.

  • We eat as a family most of the time. Our 2 kids are under 2yrs old and it's hard...but when they get older we will defnitely all eat as a family

  • Once a month we eat after the kids are in bed a special dinner. Every other night it's together.

  • At least 3 times a week (sometimes more depending on what's going on.) my husband and I have dinner alone. That's either because A) we have dinner later on so that we have a private dinner just the two of us whether that be at home or going out....or B) because my son is out for the evening.

    We eat dinner together as a family 3 times a week. Sometimes more depending on what going on.

  • We eat together with out 14 month old. Even before he could eat, he would sit with us and play with a toy or something.

    My stepkids' BM does not eat with them and never has. She waitresses all through their dinner and will proudly announce that being a mother is such hard work that she doesn't even have time to eat. As a result, they have terrible table manners. They have gotten better over the years, after eating all family dinners with us. It has taken a lot of time, and they still need reminders that we are not their servants and have the right to eat too. BM is a decent mother, but I do wish that she would eat with the kids instead of waitressing for them. I think they would all enjoy the time together, but whatever. Her house, her rules.
