  • 6 of my 7 kids and and sometimes the 7th one with her husband, my DH and I always have dinner together. Friday is an exception because DH and twin 9-yr-olds are in soccer practice and usually have dinner there after practice.

  • we are all in the area, at the island in the kitchen in the living room. Not so much at the table very often.

  • our kitchen is to small for us to sit and eat so we sit in the living room. I do understand op I have been the same way, I would wait til the kids were asleep and then i would enjoy my cooking in peace and quiet

  • Most of the time I do. But, sometimes, I go down to the family room to sit in the recliner because I have a broken foot & it needs to be up as much as possible. However, we have a split level house, so I'm still pretty close to them at the table, just down a few steps & we are still able to communicate as usual.
