Saturday night was a lazy night here. Or as lazy as my family can be with a million different activities going on.
But, when my daughter wanted to play a game with me before bed, I left the kitchen messy, I ignored the laundry (okay, that was easy) and I sat down and we played cards together.
And you know what?
My husband and my son got off the couch (and there was a hockey game on!) and played a few rounds with us too.
We laughed, we ate popcorn and we played cards for about an hour.
And yes, it did make me realize that we need to play games together as a family more often.
P & G brands has developed a way to help us join our kids in exploring, discovering and living life to the fullest. Just visit and 'Like' their 'It all starts with Yes' Facebook page' and you'll get access to some great tools to help you say 'Yes!' more often to your kids too.
I have also been given a YES! kit to give away to my Canadian readers. The kit is filled with Tide® original liquid laundry detergent, a Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser, a box of Puffs® facial tissue, Charmin® Freshmates, Bountry® paper towel, and adult and child-size aprons, along with ideas to create more fun-filled family moments.
To be entered in the give-away just comment on any (or all) of my posts for the next week and tell me how you're taking one of your own 'no moments' and changing it into a 'yes moment' with your kids. I'll draw a random name from all the comments on Friday March 9, 2012.
I'll also be sharing my 'yes moments' over the next week and let you know how I'm doing too.
So go ahead, make your child’s day and say, 'Yes!' to eating dessert before the main course.
