In an effort to make our everyday routine more meaningful, I introduced afternoon tea in place of snack time (which may or may not have consisted of a handful of crackers in front of cartoons half of the time). (Almost) Everyday, I get out the lace table cloth, the china, a snack, and make some tea. Then, we all sit down together and have our afternoon tea.
I plan on doing this for the rest of their lives. Just think, how thrilled they’ll be as teenagers to invite their friends to tea at our house. Ha!
We’ve also started doing daily yoga, which is incredibly fun to watch. My 2 year old usually requires a snack during yoga, hence the bowl on her mat. There’s also children’s meditation on the yoga channel we use, which works very nicely as part of their bedtime routine.
