What time do you have dinner?
Do the kids help set the table or anything?
Does everyone have dinner together?
Do you have "family talk time" at the dinner table?
Do the kids help with clean up?


We try to have dinner between 6 and 7.
Annika is still a little young to help set the table.
About 90% of the time we all have dinner together.
Shawn and I talk about our day. We also talk to Annika. She babbles about her day.
Annika has learned to put her plate in the dishwasher. It's just hard for her to keep it there.

Do the kids help set the table or anything? my older DS gets the drinks

Does everyone have dinner together? Yes, but unfortunately, it's usually in the living room in front of the TV. My DH refuses to eat at the table in the kitchen because he wants to watch TV. I used to sit by myself with the boys in the kitchen but it was lonely. So now we all eat in the living room and I hate it.

Do you have "family talk time" at the dinner table? I like it when we do, but it doesn't happen that often.

Do the kids help with clean up? My older DS is in charge of taking out the garbage every night.

What time do you have dinner?
~ Usually 5:30ish.

Do the kids help set the table or anything?
~ We never set the table before hand unless it's a special dinner, just load up our plates right from the pot or whatever. But the boys often help me to cook! I figure it's never to early to start teaching them how and someday their wives will thank me!

Does everyone have dinner together?
~ Not as often as I'd like. We're usually all infront of the tube too.

Do you have "family talk time" at the dinner table?
~ Nope...conversation comes after we're done filling our faces.

Do the kids help with clean up?
~ Oh yes. Every time, unless I'm feeling particularly lazy and decide to leave it until morning.
