I've seen this several places lately. Some families have a big back to school dinner for their kiddos and announce their family's theme for the year. Very cool.
NieNie does this every year. Except there is no permalink. Stephanie, WHERE is your permalink? How do you make your blog do that thing where no matter what I click on, the address stays the same? It was Wednesday, August 25, if you are interested. Her feast was amazing. Their theme this year? "To learn with joy."
Then I saw Monica's feast for her family. Monica had a permalink. Her theme was "Wisdom."
I like this idea. So I got to thinking.....what would our family theme be? I mean, what do I want to focus on this year???
And then...it just came to me:
I'm kidding. I would never make a beautiful banner with those words on it. BUT I am very serious about the theme. I'll use different words, OK?
If I could teach my children (and maybe their parents too) one thing that would make my life (and their future lives) easier, it would be to put things away when you are done with them. My children do not act like this in public. I mean, I've seen the families where the kid has trash in their hand and mom or dad just tells them to throw it on the ground. We would NEVER do that. My children pick up their things in public. They throw their trash away at McDonald's. They don't just kick their shoes off in a store and walk away from them.
Why are they treating our home this way? I am going to be on them 24/7 about this. I cannot get them to understand: If you put things away when you are through, there is never any cleaning to do.
Can you imagine a world like that?
And isn't that a nice rhyme I just accidentally made?
Oh forget it. This family theme stuff is hard work.
