Life tends to get busy, and with kids, sometimes it feels like we are always just trying to sty afloat. We go into every weekend with a list of things we want to do with the girls, stuff we need to do around the house and of course, so much laundry. Before we know it, Sunday is here, and the stress of the upcoming week starts to settle in. We call it the empties, some of our friends call it the Sunday scaries, do you know this feeling?
So we have made it a tradition for the last few months, to always be home on Sunday nights. To always do an early, extra long dinner together, make sure things are picked up and in their place for the week, and then spend the last few hours of the weekend together in our happy place. We have dance parties, rent movies & turn on the fire when it’s cold. The big girls love to read together (and fight over who gets to pick said movie) while Claire climbs around like our living room is her own personal jungle gym. One of her favorite things to do each night is milk delivery for everyone, she helps me put the lids on everyones cups, and she runs into the room to bring Harper (Happie!) & Eloise (Eyee!) their milks, before running back in for her own. Sunday nights are one of our favorite times of the week, the perfect time to unwind and to count our blessings.
I love the saying, a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. Hope you all had a great weekend & wishing you a happy week ahead!! XO71
