One simple word can make or break their moods. It can make or break mine too. I’ve been trying to be more cognizant of this fact and give in a little bit. Meet them in the middle. Say yes.
Yes to the cheesy horsey ride at the mall turned a tantrum filled afternoon around.
Yes to playing superheroes transforms Clark Kent into Superman himself.
An early morning trip to the park before school..
To chase pretend bad guys away (Captain Hook, Darth Vader, Emperor Zurg)
Afternoon swims, popsicles after dinner, jeep rides around the block, water balloon fights, bubbles in the tub, just one more book before night night. So many smiles in response to a simple yes.
What have you been saying yes to lately?
