Family Nights

This year I vow to have one night a week where it's just for my girls and I (and maybe Tyler if he's home... ;P)...

Now in reality (and my scheduling alone) this is not likely to happen every week, but hey, at least I'm willing to try!

So far on our schedules we have this:


Swimming (Both girls, two different times.... Ugh)


**My Skating Meetings (Usually every month)


Swimming (different times!)
*Activity Days (Starting after Emma's 8th Birthday...)
**My PA Meetings (Only 4 a year)


NOTHING! I call this one 'Mommy Night' (Will explain later)





September is a bit random with only some of the programs starting for the girls (others in October), Registration Nights for skating (3 of them on separate weeks), the schools AGM (held on a Tuesday), etc.

Then during the school year we must not forget to add in the Volunteering that I do that doesn't always only happen during the day....

And on top of that I have Consignment Meets (let alone the insane amount of hours to sort, photograph, post and label/price, pack and load).... AND trying to run a up-and-coming photography business (oh yes!) while still being a Wedding & Event Coordinator! Ha!

Anyways, enough about that....

Monday's will be our 'Family Night'.... Thursday's are to be 'Mommy Night' (i.e. Grey's!)....

Oh! Yes, so some of you may have noticed that swimming is on Monday's... Well that's only until November-ish.... Unless we would like to continue onto the next class...

So (sorry about the long winded explanation above) I thought I would post ideas for family nights.... And hey, maybe you'll be able to pull your own night/day/afternoon/weekend/hour/10 minutes/etc. off as well and let me know how it went!

Let me know how you feel about this idea.... I would love to hear if your family has already been practicing this, how it's been going for you, and if you haven't been.... Maybe we could make a pact to do at least 4 Family Nights (or whichever) by the end of this year.....

*Side Note: My next post will discuss the naming of these nights, scheduling, etc. I know, you're excited right?!! ;P

Hey! Wow - busy schedule for the fall!! I think a Family Night is a great idea. Your girls are old enough that that could mean so many things - helping you to make a dinner that they invent, board games, hair and make-up night, etc. For us, we have always tried to make Sundays straight-up family days, where we relax and just try to focus on staying together as a group - even if we do have a commitment, we make sure it's not a 'ok you take the kid here and i'l go there' type of thing. Nights don't really work around here since Kevin works nights and Juliet goes to bed so early lol! She starts swimming lessons on Thursday nights in a few weeks, which is exciting, but since she's only 2...well...one activity a week is enough for now!

Can't wait to hear about your family nights!!
