My husband and I just spent the last day and a half attending the local Tulip Festival with our 6-year-old and 3-year-old. I always start out on such excursions with a feeling of excitement and visions of a happy family of four enjoying the activities. There is no fighting or whining or complaining or disobedience. The children are cooperative and grateful for the fun and food that my husband and I provide.
That’s why I do it. I want my kids to have good memories of family fun. I know that when they are older, they won’t remember that they didn’t get to have as many rides and snacks as they wanted. They will remember the four of us having fun as a family. That’s what I want. Kids who grow up with good memories of family just like me.
