I love articles and posts about how important it is to eat dinner together as a family as much as possible. I heartily agree with that advice and think it is an integral part of the family growth and development together to have a calm, homemade, electronic-free dinner at a table in your own home at a reasonable hour as often as possible.
But what about when it’s not possible?
My commute home is a minimum of 90 minutes. Even with 2 kids only having one activity each, life can be crazy. Sometimes, I don’t leave work at 5 pm. Who does? I can’t make the rest of the family wait for me when I’m running late.
