If you are about to loose it.
If the day is going to hell in a hand basket.
If all else fails… Sing it like an opera singer.
If you need to loosen up a little and let go of anger, sing Taylor Swift songs like an opera singer.
If you need to get the kids to listen, sing whatever they need to hear like an opera singer.
If you or the kids need to remember something, sing it like an opera singer, over and over.
If you need to laugh, sing “Roar” like an opera singer.
Go on… try it right now…
I’ll even make a huge fool of myself and show you how it’s done…

Some days parenting is hard, and some days it is soul crushing.
Some days the pressure to get it right and be perfect all the time is such a heavy weight to carry.
Some days what we need is not another rule, or perfect parenting goal to aspire to, what we need is a little bit of silly. A little something crazy to make us all laugh, and to get our message across in a fun and light way and to keep us all sane!
I am working on including a little more fun and silliness into my parenting and will be sharing some of my silly ways to be a better parent over the next few months.
