Sliding down the stairs happens weekly. So does inside soccer and tag. They can also throw and kick balls in the house (except near me and hottie’s wedding stuff on the fireplace mantle).
- There is no power in swear words unless you allow it.
- TVs can be replaced but lost opportunities to make memories can’t.
And without needing to ask, our kids and their friends have 24/7 access to a constantly stocked pantry.
When I was a kid, that’s what I always remembered about certain friends’ homes. Their parents were welcoming and snacks always up for grabs. And guess what… we were there allll theeee time.
I’d rather have my kids loving their home and having fun any day than me sweatin’ small stuff only to miss them because they’re at a different “cool house.”
