You know, sometimes moms just need to lighten up. The other day, the older children were sleeping in so I thought I would treat the earlier risers to a cup of hot chocolate. I know, it was unhealthy, but it was wonderful to see their faces light up with delight when they watched Mom bend the rules a bit.

Jacob is really becoming a ham.

I can barely get a picture where he isn't being an absolute goofball!

See what I mean? LOL! Oh, I love this kid. He is such a crack up and so far very easy to discipline. Hopefully, that won't change.

Be silly today with your kids. Do something unexpected and fun!

It can be so hard to put everything down for a few moments and just 'be' with the children. But those moments are the memory builders.
Thanks for the reminder.

Yes, I think it is necessary to bend the rules once in a while. It does lighten everything up. And, hot chocolate for breakfast is not really unhealthy. The French do it all the time. Chocolate is a plant extract, and milk is good for you!

Yes, being silly is great medicine. Sometimes, one needs to be silly just to get rid of the stress.

Surprises like that are so much fun, and you can't be all healthy all the time!

That's my nephew! What a crack up! Give him a hug from Aunt Jackie.

Have Jess make some homemade hot chocolate. Then it would be healthy! I bet she would love to make some and it is super easy :)
