  • About twice a week. Dh works evenings, so usually it's just me and the kiddo.

  • We have dinner together every night, but DS is 2, and DH is a SAHD while I am in school, so we have the luxury of time.

  • Every night. We have to work around my older son and daughter's bball practice, but their league actually lets us have some choice in times. But we limit our kids activities to two/week in favor of more family time.

  • My kids are grown and on their own, but we have all Holidays and Birthdays together. My S/O and I try to eat w/each other, but when there is a GOOD sport on it wins out over me. I've gotten use to that over the yrs, and I just go watch something else, things could be worse, and they have been. I must admit when our kids were small though, we always ate dinner together at the table, and both my Son & DD do the same w/their families. I think it's a very good thing to do to have that family time together, talking, or what ever, but together. You'll miss it when their grown, because I miss my kids not being at my table, grown or not.
