I thought Thursday was going to be one of those days. Maybe you know what I’m talking about. My kids woke up a little on the grumpy side. I swore their mission was to disagree with everything I said in a whining tone. My nerves were starting to get frazzled. That is, until daddy came to rescue! I always knew he was my hero!
A little project to keep them entertained was just the answer (and peace) we all needed. They worked together beautifully (with a little of mommy’s help on the cutting part) creating a house out of cardboard boxes. And when the disagreement came about whether to use a certain piece as a garden or a roof, they worked it out and decided on a green roof! They got straight to work “planting” grass, strawberries, and flowers!
And when the work became too exhausting? No problem. A little rest on the outside porch gave them the boost they needed to continue their labor.
