A lot of magic happens in our home on Sundays, when we all say ‘no’ to scheduled activities, unplug from the rest of the world and spend the day together as a family. Creativity is at its peak all around and I absolutely love it. I am sharing a few collage pictures of some of our recent Sunday funday activities. These pictures are a celebration of the special moments that we had together as a family. I am wise enough now to now that true happiness is in these simple yet special moments.
My personal parenting goal is to spend at least 30 mins of uninterrupted time with my kids every Sunday. By uninterrupted, I mean really uninterrupted where I am fully present with my kids for those 30 minutes, without really engaging in any thoughts that seem to constantly pop up in my head all the time. This may sound easy to hear but it is very difficult to put into practice. This is still work in progress and some thing to strive for in my case.
Making a decision to not plan any activities for Sundays, keeping our Sundays free to relax, recharge and connect with each other and with ourselves, has been a great decision for our family. We are all learning together as a family that we need to say ‘no’ to a lot of things to be able to make time for things that really matter to us.
