Whether baby is your only child or of you have older kids as well; regardless you still have a family! Let's talk about dinner time!

Do you call it dinner or supper or something else?

Does your family eat dinner together?

Do you all sit at the dinner table together?

Do you set the table?

Do you fix the plates for the family?

Is your dinner (serving bowls/platters) spread out on the table or do you leave it on the stove/counter top?

Do you always prepare dessert as well or just sometimes?

Does everyone do their own dishes or does one person do them all?

What time is dinner time in your household?

Do you call it dinner or supper or something else? for now, I use them both, but I am sure when I am 60-something, the evening meal will be "supper" and the noon-time meal will be "dinner" - LMAO!

Does your family eat dinner together? yes

Do you all sit at the dinner table together? yes

Do you set the table? well, I guess, cups, plates utensils - seems standard! LOL

Do you fix the plates for the family? depends one what we are eating, spaghetti is something I will make at the stove, everything else is family style on the table

Is your dinner (serving bowls/platters) spread out on the table or do you leave it on the stove/counter top? both, depends on what it is.

Do you always prepare dessert as well or just sometimes? dessert is reserved for mommy and daddy after the kids are in bed! LOL the kids usually have cookies or something after dinner.

Does everyone do their own dishes or does one person do them all? I do em all - well, the dishwasher does them all, but I load it.
