When I saw this idea over on You'll Thank Me One Day I knew I was going to try this for my kids. I mean seriously... how cool is this!
I went to the Dollar Store and spent $6 on 6 packages of glow sticks. I went upstairs and filled the bath without telling my kids and cracked 3 packages of glow sticks in the bath. Then I turned off the lights and told my daughter to come up stairs. She walked into the bathroom and just stared at the tub. After about 45 seconds (seriously! It was so cute!) she dropped her jaw and saw "Oh my gosh! The bath is glowing!" Then she screamed at the top of her lungs "CODY, GET UP HERE NOW!" I filled the other bath for my son.
So for $6 my kids sat in their baths for almost an hour, giggling and hollering to each other "totally cool, right?!" It was so worth it!
Some people think that you need money to make special memories. Some people think it's the big things in life that we remember when we're old. Some people think that expensive gifts show someone you care about them. I disagree with those. It's the small moments that make up our lives. It's the simple things that we remember when we are old. It is the small and simple things that we do for or with our children that shows them how special they are.
You can live an ordinary life or you can live and extra-ordinary life. I'm going for extra-ordinary!
How will you make your day special?
