This summer the kids and I came up with a list of things to do.
Here is a sample:
1. Go to store and buy flower to plant
2. Go to park and feed ducks
3. Go to library
4. Stay in pj’s all day and watch movies
5. Go to zoo
6. Run through sprinkler’s
7. Play with Play-Doh
8. Go bowling
You get the idea right?
Why did we do this?
Because I hear this phrase, “I’m bored. We never do anything!”
And then I cringe and take a deep breath before I start pulling out my hair and throwing a tantrum.
The never do anything's drive me crazy.
I never get to drive to all sorts of parks for ballgames. I never color with them because they ask. I never read the same story seven times in a row because they ask.I never take them for ice cream just because I can. I never chase a toddler around for two-hours at the pool so they can have a blast. I never surprise them with dinner at the park. I never let them pick out one special treat from the $1 section at Target for good behavior. I never…
Get the picture?
We have done a few of the things on our list. Yesterday was a first for all the kids for one of the things.
Before I show you what it was (in a post set for tomorrow)…what sort of things do you have on your summer list?
