Making family time a priority shouldn’t be difficult, but let’s be realistic. It is hard. I work long hours and so does my husband. I’ve long since utilized Groupon in helping me plan a monthly family day. This includes making a big homemade breakfast, eating as a family at the table. Next comes an activity, sometimes educational and fun, othertimes just fun. Then we go out to eat (usually another discounted meal thanks to Groupon or not). Then we go home and relax, play kahoot or watch television together.
It’s not much but it is a huge something. It’s making memories. It’s attending and being present and telling my family with actions and behaviors they are loved, important, and deserve my time and attention. And that is something they can take with them for the rest of their lives.
I’m not a perfect mom. However, I believe these activities make a huge difference in how they grow up. So, what are some of your family memories.?
