I have to admit that I’m not often a “fun mom.” Some mothers I know are so laid back and have such a talent for doing chill and fantastically fun things that never occur to me. Sure, we do random silly things every now and then, but it’s not a main component of my mom-ness.
I think it’s OK for families to be different in parenting styles and atmospheres, but I do want to try to think of more just-plain-fun things to do with the kids. So lately we’ve been having “face lunches” a few times a week, just for fun. Really this is not a big deal. I take whatever I have around and make a face out of it on the plates. The kids see a face on their plates and you would think I just gave them a pony. Seriously. That is how not-fun I am normally!
What sorts of things do you do with your kids just for fun?
