Silliness is a really great parenting tool. Doing something unusual makes it special. We all can appreciate the unexpected sometimes – or learn to. Even something as simple as breakfast for dinner (or pizza for breakfast) reframes the meal as a fun event.
In our household, we sometimes would declare a “Jammie Day” where everyone wore pajamas all day and we had breakfast for all three meals. I have a friend whose family celebrates special days with waffles and ice cream for breakfast. Whatever pleases your gang is just right.
Legalized rule breaking is super fun. Great job having a fabulous dinner that everyone could agree upon and that shook up things a bit. And who doesn’t love waffles & strawberries (our dinner tonight)?
