Pop Tarts and Candy Corn
It's Monday once again, my friends. And as always that means it's time to reflect on the things that made us happy over the past week. And of course now is also the perfect time to set the tone for a great week to come!
If you missed my take on LML, you can find it here. If you missed the explanation of LML Monday, you can catch up here.
On Friday my family started what I'm pretty sure is going to become a weekly tradition of "Family Movie Night." I introduced the kids to The Avengers, which they loved (and that made me very happy.) We ended up staying up way too late, but it was a great time, and totally worth it.
The best part, though, was when I made the "movie night" suggestion. We were talking about what we might do, and I mentioned getting some snacks and treats for us to enjoy while we watched. I mentioned popping some popcorn, and then immediately remembered that everyone in the family likes popcorn... except my son.
I was about to tell him that we could find something else that he'd like, since I knew he wouldn't want popcorn. But he beat me to it, with a fabulous solution that I'm pretty sure only a six-year-old could come up with. He said, "Well, since I don't like popcorn, could I have a pop tart, and some candy corn? Then I could have something with 'pop' and something with 'corn,' and it would be almost like what you're having!"
That may not have been my first choice of a snack combination, but of course I said yes. Partly because there was no harm in his request, and partly because problem-solving skills that clever and brilliant just have to be rewarded. :)
Ok. I shared mine - now it's your turn! Please feel free to leave me a comment and share some of your recent LML moments. Focus on the happy thoughts, and let's all have a great week!
