Day #3 into our Valentine’s Day Challenge – the kids are loving running downstairs and seeing what their act of kindness is for the day. I’d compare it to the excitement of the elf on the shelf minus the pain in the ass of remembering to move it the night before (ya feel me?)
Day 1 we played a board game at dinner together, and yesterday our task was to make a present for the boys teachers. When thinking up ideas to do for our random acts of kindness should be, immediately I knew we had to do something for the boys teachers. My boys both have their own special little quirks (like most kids) that make them unique. At the same time, I know that their own little quirks can definitely challenge me on a day to day basis. Imagine multiplying your own childs “quirks” times 20 or more children. And being in charge of every last one. Adjusting your day, your teaching ways to help each child.
WOOF. I know I could never do it.
I’ve seen such growth in both Brody and Owen this year and I know their teachers are the ones to thank!
So the boys decided that chocolate and Starbucks was a sweet treat to surprise and hopefully brighten their day…
They both came home from school and were so happy that they loved their surprise. It made my day too! The entire purpose behind the 14 day challenge is to get my kids to really understand how one simple act can make someone’s day better.
Day #3 was to invite a friend over for a sleepover – the boys got really lucky and were able to go to a hockey game with their dad and papa along with a sleepover! So while the boys are away (minus max) momma is enjoying a glass of wine and catching up on work!
Speaking of “work” – Wayfair has a great feature each month, their “Bloggers Pick” and I was chosen for this month. You pick a theme, and feature whichever products you would like to show shoppers. Dan and I have a long time dream to own a beach house one day. So I wanted to pick decor that I would love to fill our dream beach house with. Coastal living, a beach house fit for a family!
Just scrolling through my picks have me jonsing for a beach house purchase. C’mon babe, let’s get on it!
Check out my picks that are live on their site!
