I promised my kids I wouldn’t spend the summer sitting @ my desk doing www.thebabymarketplace.com stuff. I am trying really hard to keep that promise! I read a post a few weeks ago over at Beehive Academy, about saying “yes” to your kids. NO, it’s not about letting them rule the roost, it’s more about getting out of the ‘habit’ of always saying “NO”. I say, “NO” even when I don’t mean it, sometimes I don’t even think about what I am saying, I am just typing away and I say “NO”. It goes like this:
Kid: mom, can we have a popsicle?
Voice of reason: Uh, like why not … it’s 30C/90F, they ate their lunch, they’re outside …
Kid: mom, can we go to the park?
Voice of reason: Uh, like why not … it’s 30C/90F, I’ve been plucking away at this damn computer for hours (that’s why you get your orders so fast), they could use some fun …
Kid: mom, can we have lunch?
Voice of reason: Uh, like why not … it’s 2:30 pm, they haven’t eaten since breakfast @ 8:30 and (that’s why you get your orders so fast), they could use some FOOD …
You are starting to get the idea right? I have been trying to say “YES” when it’s something that is more important than this damn computer and REALLY having fun!
An afternoon at the Kinsmen Park. This is a kids dream park, there is a wading pool, several playgrounds, HUGE slides and if you think the city isn’t pretty, check out the view. This is Georgia, Lizzy and Sam (ALL in SunSmart).
As you can see the Bical Grippers really take a beating. They were in and out of the sand and water. These are the High Top Argyle Red, as you can see they aren’t quite as high as they appear on the site. The SunSmart – Superman 1pc Sun Suit with Towel Cape looks cute on girls too!
It was a great day afternoon! Looks fun, eh? Hey, jenB … come and meet me here, email and we’ll work out a time!
Today (Thursday) and Friday (going to a wedding won’t have time to post twice), I am giving away a pair of Bical Grippers (the Red Argyle you see in the photo’s) and a http://www.thebabymarketplace.com/securestore/c335393.2.htmltoo! First # drawn gets the grippers, second # drawn gets the SunSmart – Superman 1pc Sun Suit with Towel Cape.
