    I eat with the children (dd 5 yrs, dd 3 yrs and DS 19 months) between 530 and 6 and then do baths and they are in bed by 730.
    DH eats at 930 or so when he gets home, lately though he has been eating in his afternoon break between 3.15 and 4.45..

    my little girl (17mths) eats at 5-5.30 and usually has leftovers from our previous nights dinner (we cook for 3). We eat about 7-7.30. DD is in bed and it's our quiet relaxing time to talk to eachother, catch up and enjoy a good hot meal. We love it.
    I have breakfast and lunch with her at the table. Sundays DH cooks up a hot breakfast that's long and relaxing

    We eat with the kids at 4.30/5!! They go to bed at 6.30 and are usually bathed and ready for stories by 6

    Not great for dieting as we tend to have snacks later in the evening...

    We eat with DD at around 5:45. DH doesn't get home from work till 5:30 so he plays with her whilst I finish up getting dinner ready. This is our only meal together and I wanted us to have a family meal. Have done sine se started solids at 6 months.
    Although I am returning to work in a couple of weeks so not sure how this will work out on the days I'm working.

    We eat together when DH gets home between 6.30-7pm , DS still has a 2 hour nap from 2-4pm so he gets a smoothie as afternoon tea to tide him over until dinner!

    We eat dinner between 5:30 and 6:30 depending when DH gets home. If he doesn't get home till 6:30 I give DD and apple or banana or something at 5 then she eats with us. her bed time is normally 7 but we stretch it till 7:30 on DHs late nights.

    We have only done this the last 12 months though. Up until she was 2 she had dinner at 5 then bath and bed at 6. Me and DH then ate out dinner together.

    My older sometime doesn't goto bed until around 7:30 and my younger son well he doesn't goto bed until around 7 and he has a bottle at around 6 but am thinking he is still wide awake at 6 so pushing his bottle back till 6:30 might work for us. If hubby finishes at 5 he is home around 6 ish so that could work for us I normally cook dinner early and reheat it later as I'm a SAHM. I will still give my youngest his dinner at 5 and he can just sit at the table and I will give him a snack. Will see how that goes.

    I think that sounds like a great idea! Being able to sit at the table and have family time is wonderful
