Does your family all sit down together at the dinner table for dinner each night?

Yes. Family dinner is a high priority for us. It's getting harder to keep all 6 of us at the table every night because Rick is working late more often and the girls are getting more independent. But we have a rule that no one is allowed to miss more than one dinner a week. We'll see how long we can keep that up.

It's not a big event, but we do sit down m-f together. Weekends I don't cook so it is a free for all.

When we can.

Were not always all home, and often there are kids at our place who arent ours, so its a "whoever is in the house were eating now" type thing.

It's usually just me & the kids unless DH isn't working. Sunday is the day when we definitely all sit down together

I used to be HUGE on everyone sitting down to dinner together but it's just gotten too hard to do every night. I do make sure we do it at least 1-2x a week tho.
