Summer Fun: Say Yes
Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 17, 2013 @ 8:28 pm In Family Fun,Joyful Womanhood,Summer Fun,Summertime | 6 Comments
Say “yes” to your child’s request to play today. You’ll both have fun and redeem the days of summer.
And, I do think that those are great resources when you need ideas and inspiration for making the days meaningful with your kids.
But, the easiest thing, and sometimes the cheapest one, is sometimes just to say yes. 
We moms sometimes think that we need to do, dream, plan, think, or otherwise orchestrate a perfect summer. We don’t. In fact, what we really need to do is be available to our kids and say yes when they ask.
While I certainly don’t advocate giving into every child’s request, I do think we can say yes more than we do. I know I can. Usually, it’s when my kids just want a piece of me. How could I say no?
This post is part of the DIY on a Dime: Summer Fun series . For more ideas on how to enjoy the summer holidays on a budget, check out the list.
I know what we’re gonna do this summer.
