What's your favorite thing to do on family night?

We absolutely love and cherish all of our moments together as a family. Family night is really special, and we love to spoil ourselves by indulging in all of our favorite snacks and foods. We make homemade pizzas and cover the kitchen island with snacks!! We watch family movies and eat, eat, eat!! And of course we do all of this in our pajamas. The aftermath looks quite scary and the clean-up is a chore, but it is well worth it to see my family happy and giddy!

What has surprised you most about motherhood?

I've always been able to multi-task, but I never thought I'd be able to keep track of so much in my head. I may not be able to remember what I had for breakfast, but I can remember all sorts of things-to-do, appointments, school functions, family obligations, get-togethers, play-dates... I'm mentally and physically exhausted at the end of the day, and once the kids go to bed, I have to watch meaningless TV to stop thinking! Otherwise my brain is making constant lists!

What's your favorite game to play as a family?

We love to do scavenger hunts!!! Its so much fun for our 4 and 5 year old kids to try to figure out the clues, and their excitement over their discoveries is hilarious! I remember doing scavenger hunts in high school, but I feel like its been lost over the years. This is a game that needs to make a come-back and its something different that families can do together. It forces the kids to use their brains and gets everyone up and moving!! Be creative and make it memorable!
