Mom's Secret Motto



Most parent's know that it's wise, and necessary, to have rules. 
We are expected to be consistent and by the book,
but as my father taught me,
shaking things up a bit makes parenting fun
and  shows your children that you can relax and have fun.

One motto of mine, which is also a famous quote is:

'Every once in a while, you've got to go against the book. 
Don't be too predictable.' ~Bill Fitch

Try this: Tell them you all must go grocery shopping (or another mundane task they don't enjoy doing),
then surprise them by taking them to a movie instead.
