Okay, I'll admit it. The past few days of travel preparation have had me a little stressed out. I have been a bit grumpy and crabby. If you force me into full disclosure, there may have even been moments of downright nastiness. Yep, I biffed that one pretty badly.
So, yesterday, I decided that I would try to make my kids like me again by doing mostly fun stuff (before the last mad packing dash).
Yesterday was SUPPOSED to by "Project Day", but our projecting buddies had Chicken Pox germs, so we decided to stay apart. Our project was "Phone Number Bracelets", which I found here.
As I have said before, Brynnie likes bling, so she was thrilled. Ian wasn't as excited, but accepted the idea as we talked about what to do if "Mommy and Daddy got lost."
After rest time, I had one more fool-proof way to make my kids love me again.
(I found this fun idea here - although I don't think they tried it out with a four-year-old.)
