Life is an Adventure Party!

Us. Watch out UK!

My favourite parenting technique, other than distraction, is telling my children that everything we do is an adventure, or a party, or BOTH.

"Come on kids, let's get our shoes on, get in the van, and have an adventure!"
"Please finish your supper so that we can go out and have an adventure!"
"We are getting groceries, what an adventure!"
"You are all running in different directions, my favourite adventure!"
"No one is listening to Mommy or Daddy, is this a 'disobedience party'?"
"Oh Yay. A potty training party."
---Honestly, simply walking into a public place is an adventure when I have 3 wild boys and 2 hands.
"We made popcorn. It's a popcorn party!"
"We are eating pizza. It's a pizza party!"
--------------food parties are the best!
"Hey! Let's all move to England and have an adventure party!"

Our adventure party plans for England have been taking over. Completely. We have a list on our fridge a mile long and we are at the point where everything seems impossible but life is moving forward anyway. It's exciting and it's happening and it's definitely an adventure and a party. Life is an adventure party, just saying it makes it so.

I love blogging, but don't have time for it at the moment. Writing this right now when I should be finishing the detailed inventory of my entire house, is giving me a bit of anxiety...

Writing is an adventure party for me, so I will be back. Stay tuned!
