I'll be creating goals for myself to do with my kids and the first two are these:
- Help Fable turn her Power Pocket Prototypes into a set of Power Pocket belts for boys and girls who "are a little shy and in need of some power to be less shy" much like the one she made for herself.
- Join a music class to attend with Bo and Revi.
...Which brings me to this: one of the few things we do every night as a family, together, is sing. My mom used to say the same prayer to me every night as a child and to this day it is one of the things I hold most dear.
It went like this:
Where do fairy Beccas lie
'til they're old enough to fly
here's a likely place i think
amid these stuffed animals, blue and pink...
Every. Single. Night.
I don't do a prayer with my kids but I have been singing the same song every night since Archer was born. And that song is Moon River. ...Or as it's now called, "Bo Revi" as in "Booooo Reeeeevi, wider than the miiiile..."
P.S. I'd love to hear about some of the ways you spend quality time with your family. Are you big on lullabies? What do you sing to your kids? What are some of your favorite songs to dance to? Do you have before bed rituals?
