'Turn' the day around for some giggles!
My mind is ALWAYS going. Probably why I don't sleep all that much. But lately it's usually just thinking of things to do with the boys. Fun, inexpensive things that will create some great memories for them. So today, Backwards Day was born.
I sometimes make chocolate chip pancakes for dinner since I know they both like them. With a side of bacon. Simple and filling, score. So as I thought of making that for tonight, I realized breakfast would be at dinner time, so why not dinner at breakfast time? They came downstairs and the first thing I asked was, "what kind of ice cream would you like? Whipped cream and sprinkles too?" They looked at me like I really lost my mind this time.
But once I explained my plan they were right there with me. They had heaping bowls of ice cream with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles as we waited for the pizza to cook. Then they had two slices each and a glass of soda. It's now 8:30am and they are very full. I'm sure the rest of the day won't be as eventful as the totally silly breakfast, but I did what I set out to do. Hear them laugh, see them have fun, and make a memory, and perhaps even a new tradition.
Next weekend I think we will picnic on the porch.
