One of my priorities as a Mum is to grow a close connected family. As my boys grow there will be so many distractions and they will get pulled in so many different directions that I want to make the most of our time now to build a solid foundation.
of these ideas is to have family time a few nights a week to either
play a game, do a craft or activity or simply read a book together. The
activity itself isn't whats most important - although it can be a great
learning opportunity - it's the fact that we're all together having
course, there are some nights (and weeks) where this isn't always
successful depending on what's happening in life, but the goal is there
and I will continue to work at it.
tend to have family time after dinner. I encourage the kids to get
their homework and jobs done in the afternoon so we can can be free to
have fun later. It works out well for us at this stage.
find if we don't make the effort to connect like this we can get bogged
down in the chores and necessities of the day to day and forget that
life is meant to be enjoyable.
want our family to know that while we need to be responsible and get
our work done, there should always be time for play and fun.
blowing bubbles is a super easy fun night. Just squirt dish soap in a
bowl of water and spread it over the table...hand everyone a straw and
Lots of fun and it cleans the table! :)
