 I asked this question in another group but since I work-it's highly unlikely that I can start dinner at 4pm. So what time do you guys eat dinner? What time is bedtime?

Most nights we eat at about 5:30 or 6:00. I get off of work at 4:00. So pretty much I go get the littles from daycare and head home and make dinner. Bedtime- The 1 year old will often go to bed by 6. He comes home from daycare ready but I keep him up to feed him supper. The 3 year old is between 7 and 7:30 depending on the night. The 15 year old goes to bed whenever she wants. She knows when she has to get up in the morning and she knows she WILL get up so I leave that up to her!

 On most nights during the summer we eat dinner by 4:30 p.m.  During the winter it is usually by 5:30 p.m.  The kids are in bed no later than 10 p.m.

 I usually do dinner between 5 and 6. I get off work at 230, so I'm usually hungry earlier, but I don't want to eat too early or I'll just be hungry later or famished when I wake up in the morning. I like to be in bed by 9 but that doesn't usually happen. DD would stay up all night if I let her lol

I usually start dinner around 6 or 630. I start putting DS to bed around 9. DH usually doesn't eat at home so I put the rest of dinner into tupperware and he takes it to work.

We usually eat dinner around 7:00. The kids are supposed to be in bed by 8:30, but my daughter usually doesn't make it until 8:45-9:00. I'm usually in bed by 11 on weeknights.

We don't get off work until 5, and by the time I get DS from daycare and get home it's 5:30. Supper gets started after that, so it's usually 6:30 - 7:00 when we eat. During school the kids don't get home until after 6 from sports practice so we couldn't really eat much earlier anyway because of that. Bedtime for 7yo is 8:30 - 9:00, depeinding on the day. I like to be in bed by 10ish or so but if the kids have ballgames, they don't usually get home until after 9, at least.....and then it's shower, eat eat eat eat and eat, and then maybe homework if they have some, then snack (they eat a LOT!), and then eventually they go to bed. On nights when nothing is going on, we try to get them in bed by 10.

Dinner - 6:30 

Bedtime - 10:00 ~ My teens go to bed at various times, usually after me unless one is working the next day.

Between 6:30 and 7.  Bath at 7:30, and our son is in bed by 8.  On the weekends dinner is earlier (5:30/6)
