Go Fly a Kite + Giveaway

Do you ever wonder what your children will remember?  

* Originally posted in November 2010.

I do.  All the time, actually.  And it's tricky, because you can't control what they'll remember!  But I've been thinking...

Looking back on my childhood, and the memories I most cherish, I'm inspired to be spontaneous, to have a little fun, and shake things up!

For instance, one of my very favorite memories, as a young girl, was out of the norm and unexpected...

Lemme take you back to good ol' 1986, when I had a fro!

On this particular day, my mother crept in my room before I woke, shook me gently, and told me we were going to fly a kite. 


"A kite?" I thought.

She then instructed me to put my bathrobe on, grabbed my little hand, and led me outside...

Guess what happened? 

We flew a kite!  And it was perfect!

I spent the better part of that fall morning running 'round the yard in my pajamas, and I'll never, ever forget it! 

Moral of this entry, go fly a kite (with your kids)! 

Thanks for doing things a little different, Mom!

Anyhow, get those kites here.  Enter to win 1 of the 2 kites below:
