I normally do not tell the kids in advance what our family night theme will be. However, this night I needed their input. Here is the simple, surprise theme (to my husband), family night to honor the favorite man in our lives.
We started with a little prep work that took place during school hours.
It was hilarious to asks the kids about ideas for our I heart dad family night. The answers were immediate and decisive~Starbucks and Apple computers. These kids know their daddy. I added in his current favorite dinner, favorite classical music, and favorite Mother’s Taffy cookies and the results were perfect. Simple, Stress free and together. Which is completely the point of all of this.
My sweet girl won a $10 gift card at Sunday school last week to Starbucks. She bought her daddy his favorite drink.
Try instant messaging while two feet away from your favorite person. It’s ridiculously fun.
Huddling in a cozy circle by firelight playing on computers is a pretty fun way to start the weekend too.
