Because my son thrives on routine, I recently took a look on how our routine has gotten all jumbled, so I tried to get us all back into the groove. In the process, our family has started Family Night.
For us, Family Night takes place Thursday nights in our house. We start off by having Pizza, which the kids absolutely love. When we have extra in the budget, we might order delivery, but more often than not, we get the cheap personal pizzas from the freezer section (which by the way have been having a lot of coupons lately) and add our own personal touches to them like mushrooms, onions, pepperoni, pineapple, etc… You get the picture.
So after we have stuffed ourselves, we pick out a movie or play games on the Wii. It is not really important what we do, just that we spend time together doing it. The kids have come to anticipate Thursday nights and get really excited about our Family Night. While we spend a lot of time as a family, this night is just about enjoying each other’s company and relaxing.
Do you have a tradition like this in your family? If so, I would love to hear about it!
