Its great being able to contact Tim’s best friend’s parents via a quick SMS to confirm they are happy with the sleepover and time to collect the next day. Once thats done I know they have my details and can contact me during Tim’s stay if need be.
It is a relief having details for all 6 grandchildren on my phone so that I am able to keep track of them. I feel less anxious knowing I can quickly refresh my memory before they arrive. They think I am very sharp!
My wife has kindly populated the MiFamTies App with all the details of our three children (schools, teachers names, doctors, out of school activities friends) as well as names and contact details of the extended family she adds notes to remind me of upcoming events..
My husband is noticeably more engaged with the children now that he has the core details of their lives at his fingertips. I think he felt a little disconnected before.
