LYPBB Challenge Day 18: Plan a Special Day with Your Kids

I believe today’s challenge is going to be super fun! At least, I hope so…with kids, you just never know. Most of the time, when we plan a special activity, all is well. But let’s face it: kids are just unpredictable.

So, for today’s challenge, plan a special day with your kids. I love spending time with my kids. As I mentioned a few days ago, we went to the peach festival. It was such a blast! However, that day I had told my eldest son that I would take him to the movies. Due to the peach festival, we were unable to go, but I will be making it up to him.

Today, we will be going to the library as our special activity. My kids love to go to the library. I try to take them every Wednesday, but that does not always happen–and then I end up with $15.00 worth of late charges. Crap! My son was the one who requested we go to the library again. Think he will pay the late fee for me?

Late fees aside, I believe spending time with your children is important to our challenge because we get to reconnect with them. I am going to be completely honest with you guys (even though I will probably get hate mail for this). I do not always like my kids. When they are acting up and being completely obstinate, it’s rough. But, I will always love them. Taking this special time to reconnect with them, reminds us of all our love for them and pushes aside the memories of those awful days and sleepless nights. I am certain we would all do anything for our children, including changing our bodies! If you need some inspiration for your special day with your child, I have posted some below.

I am certain I am forgetting many things, but whatever you do I hope you have a wonderful day with your kiddos!
