OK, in this family meeting let’s talk about fun things we want to do as a family.
Rubber chicken races! Water balloon baseball!
Horseback riding! Or … Oh! Camping at the lake!
Remember how it rained every day last time we were there?
And how much fun we had anyway, playing games and talking in the tent? And pretending to catch fish in that big puddle?
You mean that puddle in the tent?
Hey, remember when we had “backward day” and we had hamburgers for breakfast and pancakes for dinner?
And we wore our clothes backward?
And we played checkers where you try to lose your own pieces first?
You know what? We’re even having fun remembering the fun!
