There are plenty of times that I tell my kids “no.” But there are also plenty of times I say “yes!”
And nearly once a week I say yes to donuts. Sure, I like them myself, but I have also raise kids that enjoy the special treat!
While parenting is most often about convincing your kids to endure pain to get better (take the gross medicine to heal) it is also teaching each other how to chase and embrace joy.
What are the things you can say yes to today to dig up a smile in your family or friends? Or just uncover your own smile?! Go for it.
Be it a donut, a string of silly jokes, a dance party, or petting every dog you meet in the park, go for it.
Some days, donuts will do, will you?
