how often do you eat around the table?

i remember having some bigger meals at the table when i was little, but for the most part we ate dinner around the tv. how about your family now? do you eat at different times in different places or do you all eat together around the dinner table?

  • We only have a 4 seater table so everyday unless my kids are over and then they eat at the table and me and SO will eat at the front room coffee table. It's good enough till we get a bigger table for all of us to eat at.

  • Our house is so small that we don't have room for a table. We all eat in the living room together while watching tv.

  • We eat at the table daily, for some people, eating around the table isn't for them, but even when I was a kid all 10 of us would sit at the table & that's how we do it for every meal & snack.

  • I always ate around the table growing up. We still do it now about 4-5 times a week. I don't like letting everyone eat dinner at the TV.

  • We eat dinner together at the dining room table. But for breakfast and lunch, it's usually just the kids at the table. It is a special treat for the kids if we eat dinner in front of the TV (maybe once every 2 months or so).

  • Almost every night. And if we aren't around our personal table we are still all together for dinner in our household for those that still live under our roof.

  • We eat at the table everyday.

  • We spent 95% of our time together, so the nightly dinner get-together always seemed to be about someone else's life...

    We almost never ate at the table... generally in the same room at the same time, though. Not necessarily doing the same things. One tv viewer, someone reading, someone else playing on the computer...
