One of my favorite recent memories as a parent happened last spring, when my son and I took tea together.
One hot Sunday this summer, my husband wanted to wash our cars. We decided to put the kids in their swimsuits and make this a family chore. Sometimes it’s hard to involve the kids in everyday chores because we just want to “get it done.” But what was a simple chore for my husband and I was a huge event to our four and two year old. All we did to make it a family chore was put them in their swimsuits and sunscreen – just like going to the pool. Except less hassle!
