Monday Night

Cody and I started taking this class a week ago. Real quick I learned that we don't as a family tell each other how much we appreciate the little things. So Monday nights have become Monday Night Appreciation Night at our house. We started last week with Cody, this week we did Aidan. I didn't know how the kids would take it but they LOVE it. We write a list of things we appreciate about that person and we get to eat in the formal dining room. Aidan was excited all day because it was his night. Maude loves and I mean loves to say the word appreciate. I thought I would have to help her out with ideas but she really surprised me and thought hard about her list.

So when is the last time you took special time to tell each member of your family how much you appreciate them?


  1. That is a great idea. Our kids loved that part of fantastic families, too. I love the idea of making it have it's own night.

  2. I LOOOOVE this idea! I think we're going to give it a try in our house too!
