The Perfect Start to the Weekend

Around here the weekdays are hectic and often very stressful. So when the weekend comes we like to relax as much as possible and not spend the whole weekend running around and stressed out.

To help get our weekend off to a good start we have a basic Saturday morning routine that we follow. When we all get up we have breakfast together as a family. After breakfast daddy and Pumpkin watch cartoons together while mommy gets time to herself for a relaxing morning. This is the only time that I actually get to take my time in the shower and as I get ready for the day. I enjoy this time and look forward to it every week.

Once mommy is ready, daddy and Pumpkin finish up whatever cartoon they were watching and mommy gets Pumpkin ready while daddy gets ready. Once we're all good to go we try to do something as a family. Sometimes we hit yard sales, sometimes we head to the park or library and sometimes we may even head to the mall. It all depends on the weather and what needs to be done. Our main goal for the day on Saturday is to enjoy our time together as a family and not stress ourselves out.

That's so nice! Kids love "traditions" (at least, mine do) and anything you do more than once is fair game. I bet you'll still be doing family Saturdays years from now!

Awesome! It is so nice to hear about other families spending time together instead of running around like maniacs all weekend.
