Last Friday, my husband and I had dinner plans with friends, but we wanted to make the most of the time we had with the kids before the sitter arrived. Instead of sitting at the counter in the kitchen while the kids had dinner, we decided to make a fireside picnic. We put a waterproof picnic blanket down in front of the fireplace, and the kids happily ate dinner basking in the warmth of the fire. The kids loved every minute, and no one complained about dinner, which is unusual! I want to continue to be spontaneous, even in the smallest of ways, to create meaningful memories for the kids.
