Yesterday we started a new tradition, one I just came up with when I woke up and realized there was only one real last day of summer left. I decided I was not going to set the pace for the last day, but instead it was ‘Kids Are The Boss’ day. The rules were simple, no buying new toys and nothing too far away, just pick five things you want to do and we will do them.
The wide eyed looks of “What’s wrong with Mom?” turned into smiles of glee as they conspired and whispered among themselves to decide what were those five things they wanted to do. Then they made their announcement, here were their choices:
Destination #1, The Candy Store. We have a great candy store downtown which offers every kind of candy you could ever want in the world and plays the Willy Wonka movie all day long. I knew this was coming.
