This week, I…was a “fun” mom!

Our boys had some extra time off from school and we were able to take a vacation. I don’t typically consider myself a fun mom, so I tried some new things:

  • Instead of sitting in my chair reading my book, I let my 8-year-old repeatedly dunk me under the waterfalls in the lazy river as we floated. (They were sooo cold!)
  • Instead of watching my kids and husband go down slides and off diving boards, I joined in!

  • Instead of adhering to bedtime, we stayed up late to watch outdoor movies and have snacks.

I was pleasantly surprised by the laughter, discussions, and overall enjoyment that unfolded. Sometimes, it’s worth shaking things up and making different choices.

How did you connect with others or yourself this week?

Perfection is not a parenting requirement. Have a little fun this week!
