Sometimes I'm The Fun Mom

I have a friend who only makes breakfast foods for all three meals the entire week before Christmas. Needless to say, this friend is known around our house (for MANY reasons) as The Fun Mom.
I took a page out of her parenting book and, after making huge bowls of caramel corn to give away, told my kids that if they ate 5 carrot sticks, they could have caramel corn as their dinner.

You should have heard the cheers.

Totally struggle with that one. I want to be fun, but the practical "do the right thing" side usually wins out. Love the moments when I can be fun!

It is fun to be fun......I created scavenger hunt cards, with some learning activities *spelling, reading, math to get the answer and the clues then led them to go and find their new school clothes. We played this game the weekend before school started and the boys were so excited to go find all their school clothes. We started at the dinner table and it was a fun night. Carmel Corn for dinner....I would NEVER get these 2 boys to bed after that. They absolutely cannot handle their sugar. But you are a fun mom alot, you just don't realize it!!
