Spending one-on-one time with your kids is so very important to your development of a strong, healthy relationship. It builds trust and creates shared memories and develops a bond that will help you when times get tough and discipline is required.  My husband complains constantly about our special dates (too expensive, unnecessary, why can’t we spend time all together as a family?), but I insist on them. Kids need focused one-on-one attention with each parent. Unfortunately, special dates can get in a big old rut when you have them frequently. We do ours once a month with each kid (so … Read more

Now that they’re lower, I haven’t been hearing it as much, but the idea is still the same – to schedule a vacation in your hometown instead of going somewhere else. Before our 2017 Disney cruise was over, we had already put down a deposit on our next Disney cruise, this one in May 2019.
