Have you got any?
Do you continue some that you're own parents might have set for you as a child?
We're basically out here on our own so I'm looking to make this life a little more meaningful and memorable for the children now I'm out of the new baby phase and feeling clear headed again.
What did you love to do as a child?
What do you do for your children now, or would like to do but haven't got around to yet (like me).

Sunday is usually roast or some other delicious meal
Sunday is the day we have dessert. Usually it is warm pudding that the kids and I make together

Beach for us every Sunday over summer. First beach day of summer is a huge deal in our house.
Kids get to choose dinner for the family on their birthdays.
BBQ lunch on Sunday after beach.
If the weather is nice we get take away on Friday night and eat it either at the beach or the park. We did this as kids and I loved it when I was growing up.
We also live away from family and with 4 kids I've been really keen to make our own rituals.

Every Friday night is family night. This has started with this generation not my parents.
On Friday the kids choose a movie and we have finger food and sometimes popcorn etc. We sit down and watch a movie together. All phones and other devices are put away.
Sometimes we'll do it again on Saturday but Friday we try come rain hail or shine

As a kid every Sunday we had a roast either at home or at my grandparents.
Friday nights we used to go out for dinner as a family (usually to sizzlers).
Now, most Sundays ( if it's not raining) we go to a park for a BBQ or picnic or fish and chips and we also find a market to look at (and buy a few things).

I have a few basic ones but my kids still love them!
We have roast night ever Sunday, I loved it as a child and so do my children. Anyone is welcome for dinner on roast night too.
Take away night is Friday night, the girls get to choose what they want.
Birthdays we let the girls decided what they want to eat, where they want to go and what cake they'd like. (I love how DD1 always picks a pavlova or choc mud mmm).
Don't eat meat on good Friday even if we aren't religious.
Christmas pj's as an early present the night before Christmas and a Christmas outfit the next day.

As a kid Thursday night was "takeaway" night. Mum would make home made chips with either vege nuggets / burgers / crumbed fish / chicken strips. We would sit on the floor and watch TV while we ate.
Sunday mornings was a walk to the local takeaway for milkshake then onto a park. Best memories are putting on gumboots and a raincoat to play in the rain.
We do this with DD but generally do it both days of a weekend.
Once I was older we would walk to the local shopping centre (30min walk - bus back) to do the groceries. We would spend time talking and window shopping. Stopping for a hot cinnamon donut was the highlight of the day.
I live about 5hrs away from Mum but when I go home we still do this. Walk around the shops talking and stop off for a coffee.
I always got to choose what I wanted for dinner for my bday and what kind of cake.
Easter time I got pjs and colouring / craft stuff because I wouldn't eat chocolate (wish I still didn't).
I will start birthday stuff and we already do pjs at Easter for DD.
DH remembers having breakfast for dinner and how much he loved it. So we will have porridge or eggs on toast for dinner.
