We eat together every night. The kids put the utensils on and put their plates/utensils/cups away when they're done.

we only have 3 chairs for the table at the moment so the kids eat at the table and Craig and I eat in the living room I wish we could all eat at the table. The kids clear thier plates and such from the table when they are done but we don't set the table because I dish up at the counter.

We eat dinner at the table every night. The kids don't really set the table yet, but I should start getting them to do that!

Special thanks to Claire1979 for my beautiful siggy!

I have a huge table in the formal dining room with carpet on the floor-who puts carpet in a dining room??? Thus we don't use that room. All of us eat at the island, the four kids eat first, then dh and I usually grab a stool and eat when they're done, either there or on the couches. I only have four ugly barstools, better upgrade those before Joey is big enough to notice. We're putting in laminate next year and that's when I plan on using the actual table

Lucky mother to five!
