Our kids are only 2 1/2 and 5 months old yet we’re already having a hard time making sure the four of us spent quality time all together as a family. Last night Hubs and I had to sit down with a calendar and figure out when Sweet T is going to her grandparent’s house and which nights Hubs will be “babysitting” so I can get blog work done. We have to schedule date night, church activities, and figure out how we’re each going to squeeze in some alone time so we don’t go crazy! Imagine how it’s going to be once Sweet T and Gus start school, sports, music lessons, and their own church groups. *gasp*
Me in a Tree realizes that close family connections don’t just happen on their own. It takes a conscious effort to create those bonds. Fortunately they’ve developed a resource for families to strengthen their connections together. To begin, each family member creates their own profile and avatar.
Next choose a date for a family huddle in which members will all come together to talk and have fun.
From there take advantage of all the apps Me in a Tree has to offer: a calendar to keep activities and events organized (including who is dropping off and picking up), a gratitude journal in which family members can record things they are thankful for and share them with the family, and “My Duties” section which keeps chores and responsibilities fun and organized. Me in a Tree also provides ideas and suggestions for local activities for families and couples to participate in.
