How often do you eat breakfast as a family?

We don't do it too often because two of us get up early and the other two like to sleep in. This morning though we all got up and had breakfast together. We had blueberry pancakes and bacon and had a wonderful breakfast together. I wish we did this more often as it really seemed to start our day off well. So how often do you eat breakfast as a family?

We eat breakfast at least 4 times a week... I work in retail so we don't get to eat dinner together all the time, due to weird hours for my work... There are times I don't get off from work till 10 at night... So we try our best to get at least one meal together as a family even if it's a breafast...

very nice question my friend. i missed having breakfast with the whole family, i remember when we are still a kid all siblings, we always did breakfast very happy. full of fun and happiness. i live now alone in a simple apartment, i neglect breakfast sometimes because no one will wake me up and ask let's have a breakfast. breakfast with the whole family may happen to us once a year.

Very rarely do we get to sit down together as a family and have breakfast. :( I work nights and when I get home from work, my husband is heading out the door on his way to work. By the time the weekend gets here, all we want to do is sleep in so we dont even do breakfast on the weekends.

We never do it as my Mam does not eat breakfast, my dad eats breakfast as soon as he gets up and I eat breakfast just before I am about to leave the house and my sister also eats breakfast just before she leaves the house, but she leaves the house earlier than I do on a morning.

We as a family manage to have breakfast together only on sundays and holidays. Otherwise we are too busy to adjust the time to sit together. The only way I make up for it is to make sure we have dinner together.

We don't do it too often too. Because i always get up very late, at about 10 or 11 o'clock. When i get up, it's about time to have lunch! But in some special days all of us will get up early and have breadfast together!

We don't usually eat together especially in breakfast unless if we are in vacation. Since all of us does not wake up at the same time so it could not be easy for us to eat all together. We could actually eat as a family in lunch but that is only Sunday since that is a family day wherein it is not a working day and also we could eat all together at dinner time though not always.

Unfortunately the answer is never!! My husband is always gone for work before the rest of us get up in the morning. On school days, the kids grab a bowl of cereal and I eat later. On weekends the boys usually sleep in so it is me and my daughter~ today we hit the local bakery and bought donuts:) The only time we ever eat breakfast as a family is when we have breakfast for dinner. Everyone loves having breakfast for dinner. I usually make eggs, sausage and french toast.

I normally have breakfast together with my family daily, I believe its just too great :D Early morning, though for a lapse of only 15-20mins, the togetherness is simple amazing, it keeps you happy almost all day long :)

My husband and I only have one child left at home and she's either spending the night at a friend's house on the weekend or sleeping until noon. We don't eat breakfast but we do have a weekend morning routine of having coffee (him) and iced tea (me) on the front deck. That's as close as we get to a family breakfast.
