This weekend, I've seen so many statuses of parents anxious for their children to go back to school, so they can have a break....I'm not here to judge, believe me (every parent needs quiet time once in a while)....but this week, I dare you to....
I dare you to go out and make snow angels with your kids, if you have snow. Who cares what the neighbors think? Your children will remember this for years to come. Get that sled out, and take them on the ride of their lives, whooping and hollering the whole way (ok, not too loud, because you might just embarrass them; maybe it's payback time for all the Walmart tantrums, though.) LOL
If it's warm where you live and rainy, put on the rainboots and go out and puddle splash with your kids....
I dare you to get down on the floor with your toddler and play cars with him, or take the time to read a story to her.
I dare you to talk to your kids about their dreams this week; even if their dreams constitute being a jedi in outer space or a princess in a huge castle, just listen....play dress-up with them, and make their dreams partly come true.
I dare you to create something with your kids; whether it be a cotton ball snowman or a playdough bowl of spaghetti, create away!
I dare you to take your teens out to lunch, to wherever they want to go; then maybe pick up some munchies, and have a movie night with them.
I dare you to be a kid again! Remember, it's the simple things that really make our kids' days.:)
