I read all of these great ideas on blogs about awesome things to do with/for your children. However, they always seem to require time/talent/skill I don’t have. I share them out – because I would love to do them someday – but I rarely do. Even the “homemade” type of stuff gets expensive if you don’t have a lot of the supplies on hand already. And talent? None of my projects ever turn out as awesome as the original.
But this weekend? I came up with my own AWESOME idea. And it requires no time, money or skill!
All I did was put candles in their bagels and sang, “Happy Breakfast to you…” as I served it. They blew the candles out and thought it was the BEST BREAKFAST EVER. They were so excited by such a small shift in an otherwise boring meal that you would have thought I had served their food on the back of a tiger. They told everyone about it and demanded we do it again some day.
Sometimes…it really is the little things, you know?
