Building Family Traditions: Sunday Fun Day

Ours is a small family, and young too, with many fond memories behind us, and a lot more just waiting to take place. Things go by so swiftly these days, and every once in a while I stop and realize how much time has passed, how much my son has grown, and how busy my husband and I have become. I have to remind myself sometimes to stop and savor the moment, to live in the now and to detach from responsibility and stress and just spend quality time with my boys.

I decided today that, from now on, that’s what Sundays will be for. From here on out, Sunday will be Fun Day, a chance for us to bond, to spend time together as a family and enjoy each others’ company. Whether it’s going out to see a movie, having a meal at our favorite restaurant, attending a party, or going on a road trip, we will choose to do something meaningful and worthwhile every Sunday, and we will do it together. It will be a great way to prepare for all the crazy Mondays that lie ahead.

Looking back at the past few weekends, I’m happy to share that we’ve actually had a series of meaningful family Sundays, and so my Sunday Fun Day tradition is actually off to a great start. Fortunately, I’ve captured several great moments from the past weeks, and I’m glad I get to share these family Sunday memories with all of you.

  1. For moms like us (especially those of us who are yaya-less), getting that quality time in cue can be nearly impossible. Even reading a book or taking a pee alone is most of the time, impossible! Hehe. So it’s always nice to see moms trying to slow down and just have fun with the kids. This is a great promise you did for yourself, mommy. One step at a time, ika nga nila.

    1. I used to think that I’d get to spend a lot of quality time with my kid since we don’t have a yaya, but then reality struck and it was all chores and errands, homework, cooking, etc. So yeah, once in a while TV time is in order, lazy days with the little one too. πŸ™‚ I’m happy I get to do that, and yes, one step at a time!

      Thanks for commenting!

  2. Oh! This is an awesome idea. We should start having something like this while the kids are young.

  3. I love Sundays! Even we’re just at home and watching cartoons with my daughter, it’s definitely a bonding day and a relaxation for all of us. I love Sonya’s garden, too. =)

  4. Wonderful tradition, Patty! I’m sure T will hold these moments close to his heart as he grows older! πŸ™‚

  5. Sundays are the best to bond as a family. We also do the same thing with you guys. Celebrate birthdays on a Sunday even it falls on a week day, go to places, try a new restaurant, etc. I love Sundays!

  6. Nothing is more precious and beautiful than having your own family traditions to cherish on πŸ™‚ Beautiful family!

  7. I absolutely adore days-moments-times like these and so agree that they’re worth carving out! So very much fun!

    1. I love them too, and I really think that they are super important so that we can develop a tight bond with our kids and our spouses. Plus it never fails to put us mommies in better moods, so there. πŸ™‚ Thanks for commenting, Galit!
