This is a bit different than the do nothing thread. I still have a yearning to have a relaxed Saturday morning, afternoon or Sunday but being at home it appears that there is just NEVER a down time. I only have 2 kids, so I can't imagine more... both of mine are under 5 so they still can't do hardly anything for themselves. On top of that, my oldest has food allergies, so we are trying to heal him through the GAPS diet and I homemake every meal. So between those things and having a tendency to overwork myself anyway, I don't know when to have down time. I really desire this with my husband too - separately and as a family. Usually we tag-team household duties and kids so we almost never spend time ALL together.
Ideas? We have said we'd do a semi-traditional kids Saturday morning vegging in front of the tv. But sometimes it just doesn't work (mostly me being pulled away to finish the wash or do something to be prepped for the next meal or snacks, all of this being necessary otherwise we won't have eats or clothes to wear the next day at church).
We do the family Saturday morning once a month due to other obligations. And we try to have a date night (usually a game or video) every Friday, although that doesn't happen all the time either.
Do you do something to relax together?
