I didn't want to hijack the other thread, but it got me thinking about whether people sit down with their families/SO's to eat dinner. Dinner is the one meal that we do consistently eat together every night. The kids generally eat breakfast and lunch together, but I'm usually up walking around the kitchen, emptying the dishwasher or doing other housekeeping duties, so I'm not really sitting with them, even though I'm in the same room.
I grew up in a house where we had a family dinner. We had 7 people in our family, so to do that every night was a feat, I think. DH and I have always eaten dinner together, so it was not something we started when the kids came along.
DH and I do occasionally (a few times a month) eat our dinner in front of the TV. It is a little treat for us
