Around these parts we do something called 'yes day'. It comes from a book
And in this awesome book the parents say 'yes' to whatever the kid requests. This of course is within reason. But if you want ice cream for breakfast - yes You want to stay up late -yes.
We started this tradition with our family on our birthdays. Whomever birthday it is gets to have their yes day that day. Now my birthday was on a very busy Tuesday so we had it yesterday instead.
Did Nathan get me a bowl of cereal- yes
Did I go to yoga - yes
Did Darryl make me brunch when I got home -yes
Did I get to spend all afternoon shopping -yes
Did Darryl make me afternoon tea - yes
Did I get to have delicious steak and wine from the keg -yes
