or maybe I asked to be slapped up side the head, Amanda?
When you see a teenager say a prayer for me, I've agreed to a 24-hour movie fest to end the summer.
A prize will be given to the child who watches the most movies.
And to think 2 summers ago we were participating in a reading challenge. Those were the days, when I chose the end of summer activities.
They've grown up and realized sitting quietly by themselves isn't nearly as fun as eating pizza, chips, soda, candy, fruit (I always have something healthy that has to be eatten) and staying up all night.
I often pondered this: am I training them to be party animals? Anyone know their parents?
I trust they're gonna be just fine.
But please say a pray or light a candle or whatever you do, do it for me please.
One more thing, the movie watching prize: I think it will be a book. What do you think?
PS this mainly to remind myself: One day soon I will write a post about the women who was a high school teacher of mine who really helped shape my parenting skills- she has no idea what an influence she was on my life, I still think of her today. Perhaps I will even send her a note. Be thinking, who has helped shape you in a particular area?
