Hello Crafty Wife readers! I’m excited to be guest posting for Teresa while she’s on maternity leave! I can’t wait to hear all about her new baby and the changes that sweet thing brings to her life. Almost five months ago now, we welcomed the first little one into our family and boy, what an adventure it has been! I have a lot of dreams and hopes for my little family’s future; Fun trips that we should take, traditions that we should start and daily habits that will contribute to the overall happiness of our family unit. There are five things we’ve tried to do since our Bensen boy arrived to start us off on the right foot and I can’t wait to see how they play a role in the success of our family’s future.
Daily Family Fun
Meal Time Together
Be Active Together
Parent/Child Date Night
Create a Lasting Tradition
You’ll want to create a lot of lasting traditions, but start with one at a time. Choose a tradition that your family had growing up or something that you’ve always thought would be a fun tradition. Bedtime routines, holidays, morning routines, time apart, etc. can all have a tradition associated with them. One that I want to start soon is to eat pizza in our pajamas and watch a movie together as a family one weekend night a month.
Hop on over to my blog to read about five marriage rituals that you should adopt after your baby arrives! It’s important to set your family up for success, but it’s equally, if not more important, to take time for your marriage. If you don’t make your marriage a priority now, you’ll realize when it’s too late that you’ve let yourselves drift apart.
