|Oatmeal raisin cookies|
For example, we try to make Friday evenings family night. That means no TV/movies, just games and other fun stuff. However, after a long week this isn't always possible (but we always have the intention!)
We also started a Sunday evening tradition a few weeks ago which has been gaining traction as of late.
Our recipe for new traditions:
2 part bubble bath
1 part shower
3 clean pajamas
1 tray of cookies
Directions: After dinner, throw 2 boys in a bubble bath and let them play until wrinkly. Coerce other boy into the shower. Mix it up the following week. Once the timer goes off, put each boy in a new pair of clean pajamas. Pour 5 glasses of cold milk and set a tray of freshly baked cookies in front of them. Read a chapter from storybook. Tuck into bed.
And after the kids are tucked away, George and I continue with our own tradition: The Simpsons and Family Guy. Yes, we're those kind of people.
