Today is Becca forgot to be funny Saturday, which fits in with the mood of the American nation. Today, I decided that maybe I would share the softer side of me.
I am the hypothetical mom (my kids love when I say that, though my daughter calls me her “hypothical” mom) of an 11-year-old and an 8-year-old. They’re 2 years and 4 months apart. They both have my wicked humor and sarcasm. So I do things like the note below to keep them out of the guest bathroom, and they laugh. They, in turn, try to find ways to mess with me, and we all end up laughing and being silly. The one rule in my house is no laughing, which leads to defiant behavior from every member of this family.
I forgot that I had left that note up since the cleaning ladies were here two weeks ago. I have had guests with children twice since then. What is fun is they read it and they may have a moment of fear, but when told that I was kidding, they are excited to be in on our pranks. I love bonding with kids. Since I am practically an adolescent myself, I tend to have the fun house to hang out at.
I hope you have fun with your kiddos. My wish is that with all the hurt and tragedy going on around us, you all take the time to put your focus back on what is truly important. How do you make your life fun? What can you do to improve your relationships?
Lady or Not… Here I Come!
