Lately our weekends seem to revolving around adult socialising. We have had so many weddings birthdays etc the kids seem to be getting a bit over looked on the weekends. It got me wondering what you all get up to on the weekends. Do you socialise much? Revolve a day around n activity with the kids? Shopping, cleaning etc?
Just wanted to add that we do stuff with the kids during the week after school and when we can on weekends, just not as much as we usually do

What do your weekends consist of?
06-02-2014 21:11 #2
Currently my weekends are fairly uneventful. I won't schedule more than one adult activity per weekend so that the kids and I don't get too tired for the week.
Sat mornings I usually gym (kids in creche or if Dh back for weekend he gets them). Sat Arvos I work. Mum babysits. Occ I do sat night dinner with friends if I can offload my kids somewhere.
Sun morning is church/family stuff and sun arvo is when I plan playdates or catch ups.
I do all my housework during the week.

Weekends are a bit low key for us.My DH works nights,so Saturday nights are THE night we get together.We are homebodies,and weekends is our chill time.But my NY resolution was to get out and see more of our city and spend more quality family time together (ie not just cleaning,doing housework,renos,all which my kids hate) so we have been making more of an effort to get out and about.The kids have loved it,and so have we!

DH works all day Saturday and I usually do a few hours as well so we make sure Sunday we always do something with DS , either with family or friends with kids or last Sunday the 3 of us went bike riding around centennial park and had a picnic

Saturday I usually plan a play date, but once DD1's netball season starts that will probably stop. Sunday is our family fun day, we do something either just our family or with a friend & their kids, it is so much fun.
No cleaning happens at our place on the weekend, I only work 2 days a week so I have the luxury of letting the house go on the weekend.

I like to get out for a few hours every day on the weekend, i go crazy at home because dh does home reno stuff which leaves me with ds like any other week day. Boring. So if we have nothing on ill suggest an outing like a bike ride, zoo, play cafe, beach, family visit, shopping trip.. Etc.

We usually do a bit of stuff around the house and try to have at least 1 decent outing which is often a bike ride, picnic at the lake etc...

Gym for me (kids in crèche it at home with dh) then swimming lessons. We do some things around the house like washing etc. Saturday afternoons I usually hang out with the kids and friends and their kids and we often go to the park. If they're really tired, we stay in and watch tv.
Sundays we usually go out as a family in the mornings. Park, beach, swimming pool, train to city etc. I normally do the groceries after we get home and Sunday arvos are take it easy in the backyard playing.

We rarely do much these days. DH and I both work full time with at least 2 hours travel every day so weekends are at home, gardening, cooking, cleaning. We will do an outing maybe for brekky or visit my parents. During DS naps DH works on the house and I usually cook or do some washing. We have a 30th on Saturday night so DS is having the grandparents over. We used to be really social but working and travel means we need to recoup at home.

I usually head to a friends saturday nights and stay the night for dinner and drinks. If its going to be a low key dinner and not many people there drinking i will take DS with me otherwise he gets babysat for me. Otherwise pretty cruisy weekend for us with just relaxing and not doing much at all.
