Do you manage to have dinner as a family every night and how much importance do you place on it?
This question stems from a strange discussion I had with my MIL who was talking about how it was a rule that everyone had to be at the table for dinner every night, basically no exceptions. Wasn't sure if she was trying to get a message across to me, but honestly I just shrugged it off for the most part My dh and I do the best we can, but with four active boys in sports, and him working long hours trying to get a business of the ground, just doesn't always happen. I do try to spend quality time with them in other ways to find out how their school day, etc. went, but there is a part of me that worries it's not enough.
