T and I were driving home the other night and I shared with him that I may buy a Family Football game so we could all play together. I really don't like video games, or football, but I do love my family and I would love to have traditions.
Does your family have any family traditions?
We never had this type of thing growing up. I wasn't affected by not having that. With our kids, I would love to have time that they can look back and remember these special nights together. T is already on the verge of us being so NOT cool so these next few years will need some quality cramming of family tradtiions. I can hear myself saying “We are making a family tradition, you will thank us for this one day so zip it!” Or, maybe not so much just like that, but … :)
Last year at MOPS, our Mentor Mom shared her family tradition on Friday evenings. They made subs, watched a movie or played a game, and then took the foil from the subs and each took turns throwing them in the trash can. That sounded like fun! The kids would get to make their own subs and we would enjoy time together as a family.
I had a few thoughts as I was sharing this with hubs. I'm so NOT creative when it comes to this type of thing. Here were my ideas:
- Movie Night (FREE from Redbox, of course) and make pizzas or subs (just like I mentioned above).
- Game Night with a board game or video game.
Yeah, so as you can see I need help!! Maybe there's a book I could get for this. Or, if you could share your ideas, that would be even better! My whole desire in this is spending quality time together as a family.
What do you suggest?
