Labor Day Silly Mom

Happy Labor Day!

I encourage you to use this Labor Day as an opportunity to make a fun memory with your children.  Do something out of the ordinary and unexpected—be a silly mom!

  • Prepare flying family flapjacks—don’t serve them on plates, but toss them to the kiddos and they have to catch them with their plates.
  • Challenge your children to a game of hide-and-go-seek.
  • Enjoy a hairbrush microphone singing contest.
  • Have a picnic at a park, in your yard, or even in your living room.
  • Play a board game.
  • Make orange juice floats (vanilla ice cream and OJ—yum!).
  • Teach them how to speak pig Latin.
  • Have a family dance-off.
  • Pull out some old photos and tell them stories about your childhood or what they were like when they were babies.
  • Have everyone wear their clothes inside out.

Okay, stop reading and go have some fun! If you try one of these ideas, leave a comment and tell us what your kiddos thought.

Then we explored the trails and landmarks. We found an armadillo! It was a serendipity day!

  2. Oh WOW! How fun, I think it's amazing that what you "planned" didn't happen but God had a whole different memory making experience for you! Thanks for sharing! We went kayaking, hiking, biking at a state park – great memories were made for us as well! Keep it up Silly/Fun Mom! Blessings, Tracey 🙂

Motherhood vs. My Personal Goals

Earlier this year, there were a few weeks that presented many schedule challenges. Inclement weather caused cancelled school and activities. The kids were home. The kids were bored. The kids were needy. That meant the mom’s schedule changed, too. Worse, my daughter with autism didn’t understand that icy roads meant we couldn’t go for a Continue »
