Making Time for Family Time
Then the kiddos came along and we got busy.. HB was working a lot and I was just trying to survive the week with my sanity intact (obviously I didn’t know back then sanity is the one thing you give up as a Mum) So the weeks flew by and we didn’t really do anything together as a family.. It was hectic and chaotic and I didn’t like it at all..
I wanted to share special time together as a family, where we could just take five minutes to enjoy one another. so I started “Sunday is Family Day”.. much to HBs horror.. HB thought Sunday was Golf day so it took a bit of convincing to get him in on this new idea.. But finally I managed it and now we make sure we do something together every Sunday..
Family Time on a Sunday
It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, it can be a trip to the park, or a bike ride.. Sometimes we just pop some popcorn and watch a movie all together.. (Power Rangers this week.. Lord save me from my boys!)
It’s not about spending big, its just about making the time to be together and have fun in each others company.
We try and organize places to go, this weekend it was a local country market..It cost nothing to get in, and it was a lot of fun! The kids loved the post boxes shaped as tractors, frogs and helicopter!
We ate some blue fairy floss (probably not a good idea now I come to think of it!) and we petted the Llamas, aren’t they just the cutest looking animals?
Do you set aside time to spend together as a family?
