I get Susan Heid’s newsletter (The Confident Mom – sign up link in the upper right corner). She recently shared a lovely idea that I think would benefit any relationship.
Do something wacky and totally out of the ordinary.
Are you falling into a pretty predictable pattern at your house? I sometimes find that in our house we end up going from one task to the next without too much thinking, emotion or thought. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love routine and I think it makes things a lot easier… But how about changing things up a bit? … What would wacky look like for you at your house? Sometimes being a little crazy is a really good thing. I know it is good for me to go off from the norm and create some fun at my house. …
I’m not terribly spontaneous by nature, so I have to sort of “plan creative and fun outbursts.” Which basically means I brainstorm for ideas and then look for opportunities to act out my ideas. (I have plans to make and decorate Christmas cookies sometime this summer. I have a truckload of cool cookie cutters and I aim to have some fun with my family and anyone else who happens to be there when I start slinging flour.)
