I mean this allows her and our teenage son to know which dates that they must be home. Any extra they give me is a blessing and always welcomed (wink-wink). This also gives my husband and I their undivided attention. It makes it easy for them and us.
Prepared dates to be home will let them spend time with their friends and participate in school functions. It will also fulfill my need to still spend time with them. It gives all of us something to look forward to. Life moves fast and I don't want to miss it!
Spending time with my mom is awesome! I would love to spend more time with her but like I said life moves fast and before I know it a week or month has gone by! My mom has events that make me stop and put aside that time and plan around it. It ensures that I get to spend time with her. It makes it easy....
So that is why I think it is time for my household to do the same. Of course my adult child does not have her own family yet so I can schedule more time. My thinking is a Saturday night and a Sunday night each month. One with friends allowed and the other just the family. This way we still get to meet the people she is spending time with but also gives me time with just my babies.
Do you have the same situations? I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas!
This Crazy Life is mine and I love it!
