unwind.


After a busy day (which we have had lots of lately!) our family loves to put on our pj's and snuggle up on the couch and chair and watch America's Funniest Videos... we giggle and laugh (sometimes belly laugh!) and the kids love to re-inact their favorites. It's an easy way for us to relax, laugh and unwind all together :)

How does your family unwind after a busy day?


ps. I'm seriously contemplating keeping the kids home from school tomorrow so we can all drive down to OKC and do something fun... should I do it?

We do that too ! If it wasn't for kids, I'd never watch those shows, but they love them !

JemJam said...

Do it.

Heidi said...

I'm a teacher and I give you permission to skip! Enjoy the day! :)

I found you via MckMama- I'm a Tulsan too!!

Do it! My parent's never hesitated to take us on a trip or to the fair... or to the US Open at Southern Hills now that I think about it. Making memories here and there is more important that a day at school!

Chelsea P said...

Yes. Memory making!

Heather said...

We are planning to go to the Myriad Gardens this week. I am so tired of winter. My girls need to see some green. I think you should do it : )

Ashleigh said...

Do it! They'll be grown before you know it!

Amber said...

Do it!!!! It's always fun for you AND the kids to have days like that. It makes them special:)And it won't be busy since everyone else WILL be in school!

Jenn said...

Definitely :) You only live once...and school is just school. They have years of education waiting for them :) Plus it will earn your super cool mom points!!

I am a teacher as well and I say DO IT! Kids always love getting to miss school and you are making great memories all at the same time! I wish I could miss just to miss sometimes!

Kimberly said...

YES!!! Family memories are more important than any schoolwork, and yes, this is coming from a teacher.

I love to just sit and play with my son, that's how I relax!!

Mrs Soup said...

Totally do it.

We love to play Scrabble or watch a TV show on DVD at night. It's so lovely and relaxing.

Chris said...

OUr family loves America's FUnniest Home Videos as well! (Although it has been re-named Silly Shows by my children) I get more of a kick out of watching my husband and oldest son laugh together while watching it, than by actually watching the videos.

I say do it, your kids are only young for such a short time.
