We look forward to Friday Family Fun Night each week. It’s pretty simple: usually a movie, popcorn and candy. The secret to a great night is the catchy name, the anticipation of a night with no set schedule…and snuggle time!
During the week we have a tight schedule of homework, dinner, bath time, story time and bed time. If we don’t start each activity by the predetermined time we don’t get children in bed by 8:00 pm. If we don’t get children in bed by 8:00 pm, they don’t get the rest they need and then it all goes downhill from there.
But on Friday nights–Friday Family Fun Night to be exact–we take the night off. We lounge together on the couch with our snacks, blankets and pillows and enjoy a good cuddle. It doesn’t cost much, but the time spent in each other’s company is priceless.
