My kids are rock stars. And I definitely forget to tell them that often enough. Today is a Monday. Usually filled with school work, cleaning up from the weekend and maybe a grocery trip. Today however, I woke up to a semi-cleaned home. I have enough food for today! I realized it’s almost summer and my children have had to put up with a lot over the past month from getting our home ready to show, 2 full days of showings and not being able to come home, driving and looking at new homes, daddy working every Saturday and extra rehearsals/practices/swim team all starting. So I declared today a mental health day.
About that time I got a text from Redbox for a free movie. We haven’t seen Paddington. It was available! I held the Blu-Ray (only because our player is finicky and sometimes normal red box don’t play in it) and for $.54 I changed my kids day! I said, “We’re going to run an errand. We need to drop off a check, pick up a movie and go to the dollar tree for a few cheap boxes of candy for our MOVIE DAY!”
We made a quick slo-mo movie on my phone and they have had almost as much fun watching it over and over :). Cheers to your Monday friends!
