Good Part/Bad Part

We are slowly getting into our routine now. There is one tradition that we started as a family about a year ago. It is a great way to get conversation started around the dinner table. {I have to give credit to my hubby for starting this in our family.}

Each night, as we eat dinner we tell about a good part & a bad part of our day. There are only a few of rules.

#1..No interrupting.
#2..You can have as many good parts as you want. However, when it comes to bad can't have more bad than good. So..for example...if you share 3 bad parts, then you MUST have at least 3 good parts.
#3..This goes along with #2.  You don't have to have a bad part, but you do have to have a good part.

The boys look forward this every night & sometimes they even start it before we can. I love that it gets them thinking about their day. It also helps them not be negative!

  1. We love this idea at our house too! Only we call ours High's and Low's. It's the kids favorite part of the day.
