Children thrive on repetition and routine. Traditions don’t need to be fancy to be exciting. family game night. dessert. pancake day. schedule in 15 min per kid per day just for play. birthdate date night. Each month on the number of their birthdate, each child gets a special date night. Making the most of my time means including them as I complete my to-do list… well worth it. Time together in the car. Read books, sings songs, talk, but turn off the TV. THIS IS A GREAT POST TO READ!
